Hello, all,

I understand that ColdFusion spreadsheet functions are based upon Ben Nadel's POIutility.cfc.  I was just asked a question that I don't know how to answer and thought I'd bring it here for scrutiny.

"Do CF spreadsheet functions rely, at all, on .Net?"

I know that CF is a wrapper for Java (Tomcat).  But that's the deepest my knowledge goes.  Does .Net come into play for spreadsheet functions in CF?

V/r,

No, there is no dependence on .NET for CFSPREADSHEET. It depends on either the POI library or OpenOffice, both of which are entirely Java.

Thank you, Dave.  I kind of thought that might be the case, but just wanted to be sure before I approach the boss with it.
