Well, i have got a question..

I know that from a servlet you can get the response written to an MS-word document by writing


and then going from there..

BUT is it possible (any API present?), that I can write to an MS-word document from a simple java program (with a main(String ..) method)??

I know this sounds stupid ,.. but there is a need..

i have a web-faced app, which calls CL/cobol progs which i want to call a java program to do this... (not a servlet for some reason..)

thanks..
