Hello Friends,
I have an urgent requirement related to reading a powerpoint file using java but the complexity is that i can't use tools like JIntegra or IBM Bridge2java as it may be required to run in non office or non windows enviornment. Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

What exactly do you have to "read" from the file? Do you have to display the file?

ya i have to read a powerpoint file and then prepare an xml file using only the text content as that xml file will be used to facilitate search funtionality. I gotta use it on unix so i can't go for IBM Bridge2Java or jawin or any win32 integration project.

Well, not much help, but I suppose that you are going to have to find a MicroSoft dll to actually DO the reading and then integrate it into your Java app using some JNI.
