First of all, keep in mind that "excel" is only available on windows. If you feel that you must read/write in xls format, check out the POI project: http://jakarta.apache.org/poi/

If you're just trying to make charts, don't tie yourself to an expensive application that some of your users won't have. Why not use JFreeChart instead: http://sourceforge.net/projects/jfreechart

Both of these projects are free and open source.
