Description

jXLSer provides Excel reporting functionality to your App. It wraps the jXLS library and is very easy to use. You can implement the Excel report generation function without complicated programs and settings just by preparing the Excel report template for jXLS. In addition, it can handle complicated layouts such as reports containing multiple tables.
