The POI project consists of APIs for manipulating
various file formats based upon Microsoft's OLE 2
Compound Document format using pure Java. In short,
you can read and write MS Excel files using Java.
Soon, you'll be able to read and write Word files
using Java. POI is your Java Excel solution as well
as your Java Word solution. However, we have a
complete API for porting other OLE 2 Compound
Document formats and welcome others to participate.
OLE 2 Compound Document Format based files include
most Microsoft Office files such as XLS and DOC as
well as MFC serialization API based file formats.
Needed for supporting application servers
Closing as detailed in bug 252049 after a complete lack of response.
