How To: Read Gantt Designer files

Gantt Designer writes schedule data to GNT files.

Reading GNT files

The simplest way to read a GNT 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.gnt");

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