In this example, we will use the simple bootstrap mechanism (com.sun.star.comp.helper.Bootstrap.Bootstrap()) to get the remote office context of a running office instance and ask the remote service manager to give us the remote Desktop object and use its loadComponentFromURL() method to create a new spreadsheet document. From the document we get its sheets container where we insert and access a new sheet by name. In the new sheet, we enter values into A1 and A2 and summarize them in A3. The cell style of the summarizing cell gets the cell style Result, so that it appears in italics, bold and underlined. Finally, we make our new sheet the active sheet, so that the user can see it. Add the following code in a new generated NetBeans UNO client application project FirstLoadComponent:

Alternatively, you can add FirstLoadComponent.java from the samples directory to your current project, it contains the changes shown above.
