Welcome Gary,

With regard to Java, you are certainly welcomed to work on JSword. You 
can find out more about it at http://www.crosswire.org/jsword and 
http://www.crosswire.org/bibledesktop. Questions regarding JSword and 
BibleDesktop should be directed to the jsword-devel mailing list. You 
can register for that at 

Most of us use Eclipse to develop JSword and BibleDesktop. You can get 
eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org. And we have instructions on how to 
set up Eclipse and hook it up to CVS here: 

With regard to OSIS, Chris Little and others on the sword-devel mailing 
list may be able to help, but perhaps the OSIS users mailing list would 
be a better place for getting help with adding OSIS support to 
OpenOffice. I don't know where or how to sign up for the OSIS users list.

Hope this helps,
