Class ExcelExtractor

  • public class ExcelExtractor
    extends Object
    Excel parser implementation which uses POI's Event API to handle the contents of a Workbook.

    The Event API uses a much smaller memory footprint than HSSFWorkbook when processing excel files but at the cost of more complexity.

    With the Event API a listener is registered for specific record types and those records are created, fired off to the listener and then discarded as the stream is being processed.
