JIntegra sounds fine, I remember using IBM's BridgeToJava, it also has examples to interface a word document and stuff.

You might want to try it.

You can see if JIntegra solves the problem. What you really need would be a Java/Com bridge and there are sharewares as well as freewares for the purpose.
Although JIntegra is the best :)

Hi,





You will need to use JNI to pass data between a Java app and a native app.





You can use Runtime.getRuntime().exec() to run another process but this doesn't allow you to pass data between the processes (unless you utilise the file system in some fashion).






I would recommend looking for some C++ code to perform the interaction with Word and then write your own JNI wrappers.






Regards,
Kent
