Hi all,

i have a unique problem which i cant solve. Maybe someone here has an idea whether or not
the problem can be solved.

My boss wants me to create a dms ( doc management system ), so far so good, however he wants to be able to
read out links that are defined inside word docs or excel docs, so the document which the link points to will be 'pushed' into the
dms system as well. (I hope that was understandable, I am not english so please forgive my wording )

Is the POI API able to do that ?
Does anybody know of a similar problem and how it was solved?
Is there a software that can do that ? ( must be able to run inside a srvlet container / app server )

Any comment or idea is greatly appreciated.

Have a nice moose day

You might want to take a look at the Open Office API since it will allow you to parse docx and Excel files. Google is your friend.
