Subject POI Workbook adapter for ODFToolkit
Date Sat, 23 Feb 2013 11:28:04 GMT

I just wanted to let you know that I started work on a POI workbook 
adapter for the ODFToolkit. The goal is to make the POI Workbook 
functionality available for ODS documents so users can use the familiar 
POI API to read and modify Open Document spreadsheets. The code still is 
in an early stage but so far it looks quite promising. It's an 
interesting task because it is a rather rare opportunity to have an 
existing implementation that I can use to see how the API should behave. 
I already noticed that the ODFToolkit needs some further enhancements 
and fixes to implement all the functionality but I am waiting for the 
current release to be completed.

I think providing the existing POI API for Open Document formats will be 
a huge benefit for many users as for simple use cases I expect this to 
be nearly a drop in replacement.
