I have a MS Word template. This template resides in some database. The requirement is to get this template from db, merge data from db (insert some values from the db) in to the template (bookmark) and open the same on the Unix. Getting the template from the database is not the hurdle. But I don't know how to handle the merging part (bookmark data) on unix environment.
Any suggestions on how to merge the data in MS WORD on Unix and open the same?
The only Word APIs for Java I'm aware of are POI and OpenOffice (links are here). POI is probably easier to start with, but is no longer maintained; OO has a sizeable learning curve.

Hi Ulf, Appreciate you help. Do you know if that will work on a Unix Environment? Its actually related to fax application. On Windows NT the appl. is already working fine but since we have the server on Unix so this issue came up. I shall look into the same - link you provided.
