  1. Obba: A Java Object Handler for Excel (1 messages)

    Obba provides a bridge from Excel sheets to Java classes. With Obba, you can easily build Excel GUIs to Java code. Its main features are:
    • Loading of arbitrary jar or class files at runtime through an Excel worksheet function.
    • Instantiation of Java objects, storing the object reference under a given object label.
    • Invocation of methods on objects referenced by their object handle, storing the handle to the result under a given object label.
    • Asynchronous method invocation and tools for synchronization, turning your spreadsheet into a multi-threaded calculation tool.
    • Serialization and de-serialization (save Serializable objects to a file, restore them any time later).
    • All this though spreadsheet functions, without any additional line of code (no VBA needed, no additional Java code needed).
    For a more detailed introduction see the Obba documentation on the Obba homepage.

    This reminds me of ZK Spreadsheet, an embeddable Ajax spreadsheet for Java Web applications.
