How To: Read Planner files

Gnome Planner is a popular open source planning tool which writes its own XML files.

Reading Planner files

The simplest way to read a Planner 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.xml");

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