Questions:

How reliable and powerful is jxl? I’m trying to create an excel file from Java, performing operations like merging cells, creating graphs, setting different background colours (with gradients) – basing on information I collect from the user. Also, I would like to name sheets with current date and set access rights (read-only or editable). Can I do all this using jxl?

How to&Answers:
  • Merging Cells – Yes
  • Creating Graphs – I don’t believe so.
  • Background colors – Yes
  • Background colors with gradients – No
  • Name Sheets – Yes
  • Set access rights to sheets – Yes
