Hi friends,
I know that MS Excel is not a Database, but someone asked me whether it is possible to save and retrieve data from an Excel datasheet in servlet.
I know that an Excel datasheet can be generated from a java file, but saving and retrieving data?
is it possible?? i dont have any idea.
can anyone know something about this??
thanks in advance....

It has nothing to do with JSP or servlets. You might want to check out 3rd party libraries that read and write Office formats.

Apache POI is one that I've heard of. A google search may reveal others.
