I'd like to upload and excel file to my servlet, probably on a Websphere box or soem sort of *nix box. Read the contents of the Excel file so I can use the data in my application.
Through my brief research looks like everyone is using unixODBC to connect to remote data sources. Can I use this driver to access the data/excel file on the local webserver?
