    you will need to implement the slide transitions yourself.

    Hi Objects,
    Sorry about the delayed reply. I need this support for the 97-2003 PPT formats, not the latest 2007 XML based one. I need a java based library which can load and display powerpoint slides. I also need programmatic hooks to control slide transitions. Thanks in advance.
