Apache POI api for Java people

It is one of the great tool from the Apache,

1st of all i want to write about what is POI?,why we need POI?.

What is POI?
“Poor Obfuscation Implementation”

Why we need POI?
reading and writing files in Microsoft Office formats, such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel using Java.
when i was trying to read the data from the .doc files by normal datainputstream reader , i get some garbage data along with original data.
then i startred searching for resolving this last i found that this API is very useful to work with microsoft formats.
i worked with only .doc file for  reading data line by line , in next post i will explain how to do that.
you can find more info regarding apache POI at WIKI and at apache project site .
Apache POI api  download from here.
