No we have no such functionality out-of-the-box. But you could easilly add it if
1) using seam. (it has special module for working withexcel)
2) just writing the listener which will make the import using Apache POI.(just as primefaces tag does)
moving to RichFaces space from RF dev as that space - for RF design discussions only.
i'm using spring framework.
can you give me an idea of how to do it with poi?
just check apache poi samples - it's pretty simple.
