Has a client sent you a Word document, wanting the content added to their website right away? And of course, they want the content to fit in flawlessly with the rest of the website. What about that excel spreadsheet data that they want imported into their database? Or, what about that nice table report that it sure would be nice to have as an Excel spreadsheet? In this presentation, I will look at the options that Apache Jakarta POI project offers in working with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, and present code examples and use cases where POI is a good choice. If you have ever found COM too slow to work with in ColdFusion, or the conversion facilities of Word of Excel too limiting for your needs, then Jakarta POI just might be the answer!
