Context first, I am returning to java ranch, java and programming in general after 3 years :|...The thing is I need to analyse several huge excel files with under thousand rows . Doing it manually is quite daunting and I'm convinced that I should wear my programmers hat once more. A few years back JExel API and Apache POI were the packages to be used and they were not very mature at that point of time. Have things changed today, what is the best package (most easy to learn and use in my case) to use? and more importantly has java changed much....I last programmed in java 1.4 and I remember Java 1.5 has several radical changes or so I thought ...Am quite excited at the thought of programing again and general advice from ranchers will be very much appreciated
Thanks in advance, Rajagopal
ps: I just need to read data and do some number crunching and write it to another file.
