Yes, it is possible. I used to know how to do this ages ago (like in the 90's) using OLE (Object-Linking and Embedding). What API are you using to access the Word document?

NetBeans is an IDE; it has no facilities to do anything with a Word document. What you need is a library that knows about the file format; the best-known open source Java library for handling MS Office formats is Apache POI, but I'm not sure if it can handle embedded documents. Its web site or the associated mailing lists may help you find that put. I think there are also commercial libraries for handling those file formats.

What exactly did you find? POI and Aspose are two different libraries. For the former, the Apache POI site has examples and information. The latter is commercial, and therefore it should have documentation and examples available from its authors.
