This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
The common libraries for working with Excel files are Apache POI (for both XLS and XLSX) and jExcelApi (XLS only). I generally advise to use POI; even the beta versions of upcoming releases are quite stable.
