Hi Everyone,

I need to create a MS Word document, with tables and images in header and footer text, some formatting is needed. I tried using Apache POI 3.5 final, it only supports java 1.5 and above, but i need to use java 1.4. Are there are any other APIs for creating *.doc files using java. Please help me.
