1) Can star Office be extended in applications similar to MS office suite.
For example can I instantiate an instance of say the star office word processing program as an object in Java.
Really does it have class that can be imorted into a java application.
2) What kind of Database system does star Office provide? if any
Thanks in advance

Hi,
Yep, you can do lots of stuff.
The basic resource is the programmers' tutorial at
http://api.openoffice.org/basic/man/tutorial/tutorial.pdf. This is for Star Office 5.2, but still applicable.
You can get the whole API from www.openoffice.org. Specifically, see:
The specific API, which you might not find entirely useful: http://api.openoffice.org/common/ref/com/sun/star/module-ix.html
http://api.openoffice.org
http://framework.openoffice.org
http://api.openoffice.org/documentation_guide.html
Developers should take a look at the developers� manual:
http://api.openoffice.org/source/browse/api/devmanual/
http://www.openoffice.org/files/22/115/Spreadsheet.pdf
Andrew Brown�s Useful Macros site is at
http://www.darwinwars.com/lunatic/bugs/oo_macros.html.
Help and how tos can be found at http://home.nikocity.de/sysentw/FAQ/
SO-FAQ_English_Version/Answers/answers_9.html.
You can sign up for the developers' mailing list at www.openoffice.org
SO comes with the adabas database but I don't think much of it and you can connect to other databases like ORacle through Tools > Data Sources.
I'd just download www.openoffice.org and go with that.
Good luck,
Solveig
