Hi All,

I am developing a web application using Java which has the following requirements

1) User should be displayed Excel in the browser
2) User should be able to edit the displayed excel in browser
3) The edited excel sheet should be saved and should be redisplayed...

Please suggest me any open source tool to satisfy the above requirements

I have heard about the APIs : Apache POI,JEXCEL but i dont know if these can be used to read the edited excel in browser..

P.S.: I have asked the same question on Sun Forums.

POI and jExcel can read and write Excel files, nothing more. All code to display, edit and save files would need to by written by you.
