>POI is a java library to read/write the M$ Office format.
>You can read more at the current home of the effort:
>I believe that being able to read/write (say generate/serialize in

>Using Word and Excel as editors for an native XML system will be, IMO,

>POI has been proposed to donation to If
>approuved will become a general java library since there is nothing
>XML-related about it.
>At the same time, the POI project contains some cocoon-specific code
>that they would like to donate to us.
>In order to accept the donation, we must vote.
>Note: the donation will take place even if POI is not accepted under
>Jakarta. In that case, Cocoon will ship POI as an external library (no
>license problems since the entire thing is based on the apache license).
>They already separated the cocoon-specific code into a package in order

>So, please, place your vote on the question below:
>Would you like the cocoon-specific POI code to be hosted in the Cocoon
>CVS and shipped with the next distribution (along with the POI library
>in the /lib directory)?
