Subject How does Apache POI work?
Date Sat, 02 Dec 2017 13:01:09 GMT

My name is Anastacio Meza, but I go by Sal for short.  I have been trying
to find information on how A.POI interfaces with excel.  I am a computer
science major and am interested in how this works.  From what I've learned,
and I can't confirm it, A.POI is a collection of Java, and VBA commands.
A.POI communicates with windows OS via windows command prompt, and
manipulates excel with VBA.  Can you please tell me if this is correct?
Likewise, can you please give me more information on how A.POI interfaces
with windows.

I understand these questions are not short to answer.  If you have a
website, blog, or book to recommend that would be a great start for me.

Thank you,
