Spread Object

Spread object is now in Final RC!

SpreadObjects is basically a utility framework/wrapper for Jakarta POI library. The main problem in handling Excel files with POI is that you have to write custom code to load each sheet, each column, each row and so on. This gives you a great freedom in handling custom shaped files but in the 80% of the cases you have to load/store a big amount of data to/from java object structure.
From this point of view you can imagine each sheet as collection of beans, each row as a single bean and each column as property of that bean Logo
