What are you trying to achieve and what libreoffice features are you after ?
Are you trying to force the files created onto the server  ?
Would something like tinymce be enough ?

I set up  archiva, jenkins and some other war using tomcat for the servlet

By far the biggest problem I had, long before I got to security, was the pitiful
documentation.   Shout if you have any specific problems.  I've probably
banged my head against them too.

IMNSHO the java security model now integrated into tomcat 1.7+ is a big pile of
steaming doggy doo doo - and a poorly documented pile of doggy doo doo at that.

Have fun,
