Aspose.Cells is a Java component for spreadsheet reporting without using Microsoft Excel. Other features include creating spreadsheets, opening encrypted Excel files, macros, VBA, Unicode, formula settings, pivot tables, and importing data from JDBC ResultSet. CSV, SpreadsheetML, PDF, ODS, and all file formats from Excel 97 to Excel 2007 are supported. It supports all advanced features of data management, formatting, worksheet, charting, and graphics.

Changes

XLS and XLSX files can now be saved in Light Cells mode using LightCellsDataProvider. This gives users better performance for bigger files. The Excel to PDF conversion feature was improved. Clashes between Aspose.Cells for Java and other JARs it was using (specifically woodstoxs-core and webservices-rt) were resolved. A new method was added for getting a list of colors for different objects used in a worksheet.
