About jxmlss

The jxmlss toolkit is a Java-based toolkit for generating files in SpreadsheetML format (compatible with MS Excel). This toolkit was designed specifically to be packaged with a signed applet and is less than 10kb in size.

Project Goals

The jxmlss tool was designed with the following goals:

  • Capable of generating a file that can be easily read by Excel. The SpreadsheetML format was chosen because of its simplicity compared to the binary XLS format. The SpreadsheetML format can be read by MS Excel 2003 or later.
  • The library needed to be lean. There are already Java tools for reading/writing Excel and other OLE formats (See Apache POI, for example), however they are large (800kb for POI) compared to the size of this project. If you are looking for a tool as part of a J2EE project or something similar, you are likely much better off choosing something like POI. The jxmlss tool was originally intended to be downloaded with a signed applet in an evironment where download speed was a significant design issue.
