    I guess you could do this by using HDF (Horrible Document Format :) tool from Apache's Jakarta project. It supports both read and write in Word 97 format.

  3. Generate MS Word[ Go to top ]

    If you are writing a web application, you could write a servlet that generates the report in HTML, and sets the mime type to 'x-application/ms-word'.
  4. Generate MS Word[ Go to top ]

    I think .rtf format would be easy to build and send to browser.
  5. Generate MS Word[ Go to top ]

    There is a website called jacob.org (im not sure whether the web site is up and running).

    That uses a dll file in the java classpath, provides a jar file too and then you can programatically invoke the Msft applications from java.

    If you need it to try, pls write to me at ananth_k at lgsoftindia dot com

    Thanks,

    Docmosis can generate Word, PDF and ODF documents at the server. It has free and enterprise versions depending on how many documents you need to generate per minute: http://www.docmosis.com/
