I develop non-web applications, and I would like to have instructions or help please. In fact I want to create an executable application which will be able to read an excel file and dynamically fill in an employee file template (containing a photo of the text and icons). enter image description here I was thinking that Java swing will allow me to make the application. On the other hand, creating the template with java and filling it dynamically according to the information coming from the excel remains a bit vague for me.

If you have any solutions or tools to develop it that would be appreciated.

Thank you

You can find an example here: How to Read Excel File in Java - Javatpoint[^]

Or follow this Udemy course[^]

For printing you could use a Java PDF library like this one: Apache PDFBox | A Java PDF Library[^]

Hello,
Thanks for the answer. In other hand, when I finish reading the excel, I want to enter these data to a template and print it.
How to build my template and edit it ? My template has a placeholder for a photo, different section to put icons and has images. These data depends on each employee.
Input : excel
Ouput : employee template to print with his information

I'm not a Java programmer, but I suppose you could use a PDF library like https://pdfbox.apache.org/ for that.

Indeed it is image processing. it's like printed ID cards. you read a line in excel and you build the corresponding identity card (with photo, and icon)

1- I retrieve the employee information on excel
2- I fill my template by placing the round photo, the skills with icons
3- I save the employee file created by the template
