How To: Read GanttProject files

GanttProject writes schedule data to GAN files (which are actually just XML files).

Reading GAN files

The simplest way to read a GAN 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.gan");

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