Embed a PDF within Excel
We have a requirement where we need to generate a excel file and embed a pdf document within a particular cell of the file.
We found that this is achievable through Aspose cells java API, however, not sure if there is any open source library for doing this.Does anyone have a prior experience of doing something like this through a java API?

I am not sure if this usecase is tested OOTB as it is a custom requirement, nonetheless you can write an activity and use java api that you mentioned in java step of your activity. However question would be, are you generating Excelsheet manually where you want to embed pdf file? or is it something you want to implement in export to excel feature in some of your reports?
Do you have an example where you have manually embedded a PDF into an EXCEL file that you could share here ? It may be you can 'de-construct' it using Apache POI libraries and thereby work out whether you can perform the opposite task using the same library.
