I have a memory issue using Apache POI. When creating a workbook ( like so:
Workbook workbook = WorkbookFactory.create( inputStream );

Open in new window

It takes much memory. For example, executing that line on an excel file that is 73mb causes memory usage to jump by about 1gb (according to the Windows Task Manager - PF Usage)

Two question
1. Why so much memory?
2. Is there a way to read an create/read row-by-row or column-by-column?
