Aspose cell setup for java

please some one help me out for setting up environment for aspose cell for java


Hi Setu,

Well, Aspose.Cells for Java is packaged into Aspose.Cells.jar file. The component 's package name is "com.aspose.cells", which contains classes, interfaces and other members etc.

I create a simple test file i.e. "" into notepad.

import com.aspose.cells.*;

class HelloWorld

public static void main(String []args)


//Instantiate a Workbook object that represents Excel file.
Workbook wb = new Workbook();
//Note when you create a new workbook, a default worksheet
//"Sheet1" is added (by default) to the workbook.
//Access the first worksheet "Sheet1" in the book.
Worksheet sheet = wb.getWorksheets().getSheet(0);
//Access the "A1" cell in the sheet.
Cell cell = sheet.getCells().getCell("A1");
//Input the "Hello World!" text into the "A1" cell
cell.setValue("Hello World!");
//Save the Excel file."E:\\MyBook.xls",FileFormatType.EXCEL2003);


catch(Exception ee)




For comiling and runing the program you may try to use some tool e.g., eclipse and set the path of the .jar file or use the default command prompt of windows to set the env.


e:\>javac -classpath %classpath%;e:\Aspose.Cells.jar;
e:\>java -classpath %classpath%;e:\Aspose.Cells.jar; HelloWorld

Note: You may also try to use the environmental variables of windows to premanently set the jdk and Aspose.Cells classpath. e.g., In WinXp, Click System in Control panel, click the Advanced tab in System dialog box, click Environment Variables button to define the variable.

Thank you.

Hi Setu,

Well, you may use Cell.getValueType() method to implement CellValueType interface value and check its type.

Thank you.
