Prior to Java 8 it was possible to perform SQL queries on a Microsoft Excel file using the ODBC driver provided by Microsoft and the JDBC ODBC bridge driver which was part of the JDK.
Since the JDBC ODBC bridge driver is not part of JDK 8, how can I achieve the same functionality?
In other words I want to search for data in an Excel file in a similar way to querying it using SQL.
Thank you Jeanne.
As far as I can tell, the only relevant link on that page is HXTT.
However a $2651 (USD) Enterprise license price tag is not terrribly inviting.
By the way, I would suggest that someone update that page, especially the link to the JavaWorld article that was written 13 years ago and isn't relevant for Java 8.
