Binary Distribution#

Nightly Builds#

The POI nightly builds are run on the Jenkins continuous integration server.
These builds should not be used in production: they are mostly intended for use by developers to help with resolving bugs and evaluating new features or users who want to try out the latest version.


It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP and MD5 signatures. Please read Verifying Apache HTTP Server Releases for more information on why you should verify our releases. This page provides detailed instructions which you can use for POI artifacts.

The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the KEYS file as well as the .asc signature files for the relevant release packages. Make sure you get these files from the main distribution directory, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures.

As an example:

% pgpk -a KEYS
% pgpv poi-X.Y.Z.jar.asc        


% pgp -ka KEYS
% pgp poi-X.Y.Z.jar.asc


% gpg --import KEYS
% gpg --verify poi-X.Y.Z.jar.asc poi-X.Y.Z.jar
