Description Vicente 2014-02-04 22:29:19 UTC
I'm using XSSF and SAX (Event API) to extract the content from xlsx files, these files are really big, and the only way that I have seeing to extract the content without generating an OutOfMemory is using the SAX (Event API), it seems to work very nice.

But, I'm wondering if there is a way to extract the metadata from the same file, for example, author, lastupdate, etc, custom metadata, core metadata, etc.

I know that there is a way to extract it using XSSFWorkbook but I cannot use that, I'm using  big files and it make an OutOfMemory.

Please let me know if this approach is possible, I have been searching in the web and all the solutions are using XSSFWorkbook.

Thank you!!!
