How To: Read Asta Powerproject and Easyproject files

Asta Powerproject and Asta Easyproject both use PP files.

Reading PP files

The simplest way to read a PP file is to use the UniversalProjectReader:

import net.sf.mpxj.ProjectFile;
import net.sf.mpxj.reader.UniversalProjectReader;

// ...

UniversalProjectReader reader = new UniversalProjectReader();
ProjectFile project ="my-sample.pp");

You can work directly with the AstaFileReader by replacing UniversalProjectReader with AstaFileReader, although this offers no particular advantage as there are no additional configuration settings available on the AstaFileReader class.
