I'm writing a Java client that I would like to, among other things, be aware of OOo connection status. I've been reading through *3.3.1 UNO Interprocess Connections* in the Dev Guide and understand the ConnectionAwareClient.java example there.
I'm wondering if I can somehow connect to an OOo process that wasn't started in listening mode. For example, an instance of OO Calc, started normally (from the menu or whatever) that was running before my client was launched. I'd like my client to be able to interact with and monitor the connection status of that instance of OO Calc. Is this possible? On a slightly unrelated note, I'm unclear on the differences between Bootstrop.bootstrap (used in the FirstLoadComponent example) and Bootstrap.createInitialComponentContext() (used in the ConnectionAwareClient example). If I'm going to use the bridge method of monitoring the connection, do I have to use Bootstrap.createInitialComponentContext or could I also use Bootstrap.bootstrap()? Thanks, Jason
