Description Osama 2014-06-16 10:39:55 UTC
I'm trying to upgrade an existence code that deals with converting .xls file into html file, the code using org.apache.poi.hssf.converter.ExcelToHtmlConverter class.

Now, the upgrade is required to handle converting xlsx files into html, but I'm not able to find the equivalent class in the XSSF API.

IS there one?

Apache Tika provides conversion from a wide range of file formats (including .xls and .xlsx) to xhtml, I'd suggest you try that. (Tika builds on top of POI)
Comment 2 Dominik Stadler 2014-07-02 15:06:34 UTC
Based on comments from Nick we currently do not plan to implement this as there is similar functionality available in Apache Tika. 

If you can provide the necessary changes including unit tests we may reconsider...
