    Default Report in another format (like Word or Excel)


    when a report is drawn in servlet application, then is it possible to export it to another format (like Word or Excel)

    Quick response is highly appreciated

    export to excel is implemented using Apache POI, Word is not implemented until the Apache project has releases a stable writer for that.

    Of course, you can export to HTML and load the result in word, the result should be the same.

    Which export is done is to be implemented by the servlet, by choosing the right report processor for that task.

    We have no demos for generating excel files from servlets, but it should not be difficult to modify one of the servlets. I would suggest, you use the HtmlServlet as starting point, as the HtmlProcessor and the ExcelProcessor are table export targets.

    Have more fun,
