Reading data from excel sheet and displaying


I have  data in excel which i want to read and display in the jsp page..
I have used  apache POI which can display the set of data in the Jsp page. which is working fine.
I have another requirement which i need use a criteria to display the various data like
when i put the customer name in a text on a jsp page and a click on a button i need to display the
list his data in an jsp Grid and  if i give start date and end date in jsp i should able to display
list customer information in a Jsp....
How This can be achieve ...
Or shall i  export the excel sheet data into mysql database and start writing sql for this...
and display data in the jsp from the database

Let us know if that can be achieved without database or with excel can we do the filtering criteria

You can do it with code and reading from the excel file.  You're right that putting it into a database will make it easier to do the programming, but it's up to you.
