I am using HSSF POI to create an Excel sheet. I am in need of sorting this sheet based on a column value. If you know how to do this, please let me know.

Thanks!

POI is just an API to read and write Excel files. You can use it to perform some simple manipulations, but nothing like sorting. That would be good addition, though, so if you get around to implementing it, you might consider contributing the code to the project

Since POI is a 3rd party API, I'm moving this thread to Other Open Source Projects.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
