does anyone know if it's possible to open MS Word from a jsp page and send some text(ex.Name, Adress and so on) to be displayed in the word-document?

Well to open Ms-Word and send text to it, just set the mimeType in the contentType attribute in the Jsp page directive to application/msword which enables the results of the jsp page to be viewed in a Ms-Word application.
<%@ page language="java" contentType="application/msword"%>
I agree. Here's the link:
