Subject POI 1.0-beta 1 released (pure-java ole 2 cdf library, pure java xls library, XLS Serializer)
Date Wed, 26 Dec 2001 14:21:07 GMT
Hi everyone,

I just wanted to announce the first beta of the POI project has been
released (12/24/01).  This edition includes the pure java port of
Microsoft's OLE 2 Compound Document format (POIFS), a pure java port of
Microsoft's Excel (XLS) file format (HSSF), and an XLS Serializer
(HSSFSerializer) as well as documentation and examples on how to set it
up and use it with Cocoon 2.  We build on the examples distributed with
Cocoon 2 so that everyone can try them "out of the box" (takes under two
minutes to set up).

I hope everyone will try it and report any defects or feature requests. 
You can read more at and

If there are no major defects discovered you can expect a production
release at the end of the month.
