There are lot of techies using you can develop a good framework.

1) For input data:-Hash map,jxl and apache poi(third party jar),but my opinion use hash map,it is pretty easy and secure :)
Refer below link for hashmap:
2) For build purpose:-Maven
Create a maven project using the eclipse(using the eclipse you can create a package structure easily) and configure pom.xml.
