San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
Extentech Inc. (http://www.extentech.com), a leading developer of Java spreadsheet tools, launches ExtenXLS 6.0 - the next version of the popular Java Spreadsheet SDK that rivals competitors with its ability to automate functions in a spreadsheet application with an advanced Web2.0 API.
In addition to the most robust spreadsheet handling available in Java, developers can now take their spreadsheet applications beyond the basics with advanced Web 2.0 spreadsheet functionality not found in any other product. With just a few lines of Java code, developers can now utilize spreadsheet functionality from their AJAX Web applications, and execute powerful features such as spreadsheet versioning, spreadsheet Web services, and distributed collaborative editing.
ExtenXLS boasts automated handling of data mapped spreadsheets with the ability to map data from any source into spreadsheet templates. As data rows are inserted, dynamic spreadsheet objects such as formula references, chart series, named ranges, and formatting are all duplicated and automated so that the output contains not only live data, but keeps formatting and spreadsheet functionality in charts and formulas intact.
ExtenXLS 6.0 takes spreadsheet-based application development and reporting to new levels of business intelligence, portability and collaboration. By using a single line of code, developers can output spreadsheet objects to JSON syntax for ready consumption by AJAX applications using the Prototype.js framework. And with collaborative features such as instant messaging, developers can ensure that multiple end-users can view, update and format the same spreadsheet at the same time -- the essence of modern collaboration.
After almost 7-years of handling the most demanding spreadsheets from enterprise customers worldwide, ExtenXLS is considered by many to be the most robust Java spreadsheet toolkit available. ExtenXLS will not corrupt spreadsheets, and can handle any input spreadsheet file no matter the complexity.
John McMahon CEO of Extentech states, "With ExtenXLS 6, we go way beyond the basics of traditional spreadsheet functionality by creating the first and only Java spreadsheet SDK with native support for Web 2.0 technologies like JSON, XML/XSLT, spreadsheet collaboration, and version control. But we haven't left the basics behind... ExtenXLS 6 sports total control over charts, total control over images, and the dozens of enhancements, optimizations, and fixes that make ALL of our customers happier -- not just the Web2.0 pioneers."
