Poi Utils
Poi Utils


The POI Utils are classes we're looking to donate elsewhere and include. These are usually classes that while are required for our mission, are somehow outside of it. General utilities that could be used in any project are what we would normally put here. If you see one, and you think "gee that would be great as part of X project" then let us know. While we wish to put these in their rightful place, we also don't want to include a 40mb jar file just to process text strings, so that will be a consideraton.

Currently, we're looking into which subprojects in the Jakarta Commons project to donate these too. The "Poi Utils" package won't go away, as there may be later classes. The idea is that "go ahead and add it, we'll merge it or find an alternative later, just keep pounding out that poi!"
