Why Aspose for NPOI?

The developers looking for file format APIs may need to walk through the features provided by the APIs available on the market. Mostly following factors are considered when choosing an option:

  • Features
  • Efforts required to use the API
  • Comparison between libraries to determine which is better

If you are a .NET developer looking to choose a file format API to process files, you may want to compare NPOI with Aspose or Explore advanced features that are not available in one API.

What's HWPF and XWPF

HWPF is the name of Apache POI port of the Microsoft Word 97(-2007) file format to pure Java. It also provides limited read only support for the older Word 6 and Word 95 file formats. It is still in early development.

XWPF is partner to HWPF for the new Word 2007 .docx format is XWPF. Whilst HWPF and XWPF provide similar features, there is not a common interface across the two of them at this time. It has a fairly stable core API, providing read and write access to the main parts of a Word .docx file, but it isn't complete.

Both HWPF and XWPF provides Basis Text Extraction, Specific Text Extraction, Access of Header & Footers and Changing Text features.
