POI 4 XPages - Review: Very good and versatile

For those considering this project, I would recommend it.  It provides a more streamlined approached to configuring Excel spreadsheets, word docs and PDF from Xpages.  

It overcomes some of the complexities and nuances of Apache POI and enables you to concentrate on other things.  Our implementation calls on an existing Excel template with the data being populated by a managed bean. This enables all of the formatting to be completed in the template in native Excel, with data coming from Notes docs in the back end.

Overall, a great project that would be of significant benefit to anyone going down the Apache POI path.  Either as a final solution or even if it was an interim first step before writing you customised Apache POI code.

Thanks Christian and team.

You can use the rich text editor for rich text formating. You can also enter HTML to embed objects, e.g. to embed a YouTube video or a screenshot of the project. In this case use '[' and ']' to mark the passthrough HTML as such.

Please note that the first time you use the new UI your description is converted from rich text to MIME. You might want to copy and paste the raw plain text from the old UI in the new UI so that you don't loose information.
