I want to do a simple login form for an RMI application..I basically have a number of username/passwords in an excel file..i want the username/password inputted by the user to be checked against the values in the excel file..Problem is i dont know how to integrate the excel file into my class..Can someone please explain to me how to do this please / Point me in the direction of some useful tutorials..

PS Its a college assignment and excel files will do for data storage/retrieval (i.e i dont need to use a DB)

Get the values out of the spreadsheet first http://technojeeves.com/joomla/index.php/free/113-read-excel-spreadsheet-with-java then make a Credentials class. Have a List<Credentials> and check with something like
boolean validLogin = credentialsList.contains(new Credentials(username, password));

Open in new window

you could use POI but its not really necessary in your case.

you can instead simply use jdbc to access the file
