Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone can tell me what is the best API in the market today for parsing Excel workbooks.

I have heard of POI but is there anything better?

There is rarely a single "best" for anything. The closest you can get is generally "best for your requirements".

There's also http://www.andykhan.com/jexcelapi/ although its development has slowed down compared to POI, and there's no sign that it will ever deal with the Office XML formats (which POI can now handle).
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
