>Lets start putting a game plan together for HWPF.

Good idea - I've been reviewing the position while
preparing PATCH http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=30235
and believe we need to come up with a core fetures list
with code examples. Then I would hope that HWPF could emerge
from scratchpad and get more users and hopefully developers.

I am keen to see Ryan's article that he refers to in his
post http://www.mail-archive.com/poi-dev@jakarta.apache.org/msg08390.html

>... An article that Avik and I wrote will be appearing in the August
>issue of Java Developer's Journal and it covers the capabilities

>From this I think we should gather some opinion as to the
"must have's" and then work from there.

Comments welcome!

Best regards all,
			Piers
