Hi Vijay,

good to hear you could make use of the starter extension.

please use the LibreOffice mailing list for questions like these, I'm 
adding the list to cc.

For general hints about extension development you can check:

  * (linked from
    the above page)

Here are some examples how to use the XSpellChecker API from Java:

The oxt is built when you "run" the extension from Eclipse with the 
LOEclipse plugin. You find it in the "dist" folder. The starter 
extension has the steps how to create a run configuration:

You can also create the oxt by visiting File->Export, and there you can 
also create an ant script to generate the oxt file.

Hope this helps.
