- This whole cocoon thing is a tragic example of a gigantic edifice achieving nothing
- ......Tower of Babel anyone?
- 
- I came here because I had a simple aim: to write Excel from Java....
- I quickly found HSSF which is in POI (why?) so I downloaded the POI bloat....
- HSSF may even work.. over on the HSSF page they have departed, leaving a message
- saying they have moved to Cocoon. This is a calamity.....
- Arriving at cocoon you can easily spend an hour wallowing in the 
- crud, until you realise that its all XML, there is no Java to Excel......
- well XML may be very nice, (DLL and COM objects sounded nice when you first heard about
them)
- But my reaction to the cocoon blathering site(s) is to retch and depart
- 
- [and this wiki stuff is Less useful than a newsgroup and more bloated, 
- requires me to learn a whole new suite of crapola, .... no thanks
- 
- the sole simple example I have seen so far for HSSF  so absurd as to make me weep...
- the chap actually gives each row a separate new variable, and leaves the write to the end
- Hasnt he heard of buffered output? ...
- 30 years ago anyone could have told him, ...
- write a row at a time knucklehead...
- 
- I am still reeling from the shocks this whole experience has dealt me
