CF9 Beta: Small POI and OOXML Tip

I noticed the CF9 beta uses POI version 3.5-beta5-20090506. I am assuming it is what powers the cool new <cfspreadsheet> tag.

Now I do not know if POI is used for anything else, but the nice thing about version 3.5 is that it includes ooxml handling. That means you can use neat tricks like these, right out out of the box. No extra jars or javaLoader needed.

You know, I tried like hell to get you on the CF9 Alpha/Beta, but you're one of those ghosts on the web or something. I don't think anyone ever did find your contact info. :)

@webRat,

Guilty as charged! I keep meaning to rectify that, but every time I see the About Me section my brain goes blank. I guess I should put up an email at least. Though I am liking the "ghost in the machine" imagery ... ;)
