I am sure you have found the DevGuide and the samples in the wiki or the
SDK.

Nevertheless I would recommend that you subscribe to the
ooo-api@incubator.apache.org (in the future api@openoffice.apache.org)
and ask concrete questions there. It's probably easier to answer
concrete questions

I am assuming that you develop an extension with some UI integration
(menu, toolbar) that we call add-on. If yes you should maybe also try
the NetBeans plugin that provides a wizard for basic add-ons. But the
generated skeleton can be used to add more stuff later on manually.

Look at
http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/WritingUNO/Integrating_Components_into_OpenOffice.org


and the sub chapter (nav bar on the right side) where you can get more
info about ProtocolHanlder and Add-Ons
