How To: Deltek Open Plan BK3 files

Deltek Open Plan is a planning tool for Windows which can store schedule data in a variety of databases, and export schedules to BK3 files.

Reading Open Plan files

The simplest way to read an Open Plan 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.bk3");

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