POI- How to pop up the Excel sheet

Hi,
    I am currently using Java POI to create a Excel Sheet. I would like to know what are the commands to pop out the Excel Sheet in a new Excel when I click a button. The Excel sheet will not be saved to any place btw, just a simply open in a new Excel. Please advise.


Thanks

Are you talking about a button on the Excel worksheet or a button in your Java user interface?

Or a submit button to a servlet?

Does that not come under the category "Java user interface"?

Good point, you're right that technically it could be described that way.  Unless I've misunderstood the ramifications with using POI for the two different situations would be different despite how they could be both classed as such.

Billy:

You can save it as a temporary file, and open Excel on it.
Delete it later.
