Our application uses POI API (poi-2.5.1.jar) for reading through from stand out files and also to create stand out files.
Later on the applying must also support Home windows 7.
However I think POI API doesn't support Home windows 7 stand out.
1) What's the alternative ?
2) It is possible to solution available that is backward compatible too ?
Thank you for reading through!
I believe you're confused. There's no "Home windows 7 Stand out", you will find just different versions of Stand out. Most particularly, there's the pre-2003 office extendable (
.xls or HSSF in POI enunciation) and also the new XML-based format (
.xlsx or XSSF in POI enunciation).
POI supports both and also the distinction is rather transparent from the user model perspective, though you'll most likely have to adapt old XLS-only code.
