That'sgreat, OpenOffice uses Java for some areas of the software. At core 
it works on C++ but there are JAVA wrappers to work with the API, the 
Add-ons and extensions. 

Eclipse has some plugins to make development easier, but most of the 
plugins are a bit outdated. I hope you are able to get your environment 
setup, if you hit a roadblock, please let us know.
