Adding Date support to POIUtil.cfc (Jakarta POI) when WRITING excel sheets

Posted by Luis Majano
08 Oct 2007 12:00 AM
The POIUtil.cfc by Ben Nadel is a great wrapper to the Apache POI project. I am using it in a current project and have come to certain caveats that I needed to extend the library. I did a post regarding how to read excel dates, this is the second part, how to write dates. This can apply to various types of formatting that could be done on an excel sheet. To come up with all the variations would take a very big big POI coldfusion wrapper. So I am coding to my needs.

Anyways, to sum up the problem

Excel stores dates as numbers therefore the only way to determine if a cell is actually stored as a date is to look at the formatting.

Enter a little digging in the docs and the API and you find the famous HSSFDataFormat class.

This class will help you get the correct formatting for any kind of date, datetime, etc.

I have been experiencing some odd behavior on Eclipse 3.3.1 when refreshing folders within a project that exists in a mapped drive. The following is a screenshot of the error:

DailyRazor is infringing their terms of service!! Please help

This is an open letter to all developers or companies who are hosting with daily razor. They have admitted that they will be blocking the following:

CF tags:

CFCOLLECTION

CFCONTENT

CFEXECUTE

CFLOG

CFOBJECT

CFOBJECTCACHE

CFREGISTRY

CF functions:

SetProfileString

CreateObject(COM)

CreateObject(CORBA)

CreateObject(JAVA)

Not only that, they have given no warning to their customers. I had to email them that a friend of mine told me. So here is the deal where they screw up. Under their terms of service they write:

2. Web Hosting Services

For the term of the agreement as set forth herein DAILYRAZOR agrees to provide web hosting services according the plan selected by you upon activation of your account. DAILYRAZOR reserves the right to change, amend and/or otherwise alter the services provided with equivalent or otherwise equal services without prior notice to you.

The last line says it all:

provided with equivalent or otherwise equal services without prior notice to you.

The fact of the matter is that they will NOT be providing equal services. They will be hindering services and breaking applications. Not only that, the amount of time needed to transfer and recreate the applications and websites in another host will take weeks.

I need legal counsel or should I just seek alternatives and take in the damages?? What do you guys recommend?

I need Hosting Advice?

I currently have my domains and setups on www.dailyrazor.com hosting. However, it has come to my attention they will disable CreateObject() features, which seems ridiculous. Being preventive, I would like to ask what hosting companies you recommend. One of the requirements I have is that I can be able to host multiple domains under the same account. I can create different domains and subdomains and databases.

Any recommendations?

Adding Date support to POIUtil.cfc when reading excel sheets

The POIUtil.cfc by Ben Nadel is a great wrapper to the Apache POI project. I am using it in a current project and have come to certain caveats that I needed to extend the library. Ben, hope you are reading, I sent you an email with the update.

Anyways, to sum up the problem

Excel stores dates as numbers therefore the only way to determine if a cell is actually stored as a date is to look at the formatting.

Enter a little digging in the docs and the API and you find the famous HSSFDateUtil class. This class contains a bundle of static methods for you to check and validate date formatting in excel.
