Yup, POI is the way to go. If you use the classes in the* packages (and NOT the ones in org.apache.poi.hssf or org.apache.poi.xssf) then you can work with both file formats. will get you going (just remember to use the proper package!).
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
