Merging the docx files using Apache POI

Can we perform document merging (of docx file ) using Apache POI XWPF apis? I am not trying to merge the not only the contents but also the style and formatting associated..so copy and paste content wouldn't work for me. My requirement is somewhat similar to the post:

Thanks.

It shouldn't be hard to port that code from using the HWPF API (for DOC) to the XWPF API (for DOCX) - the classes and methods are largely identical.

Is there sample code available to merge two DOC files, so I can correlate it with DOCX? In the post referred to, you had commented that there are several objects other than range that need to be merged, and there was no conclusion whether the original poster was able to merge DOC files using POI.
In XWPF, I could not find methods to get the range. The XWPFDocument class has plenty of support to retrieve content from DOCX, but only a few methods to write back.

I'm not aware of any sample code, I've never tried anything like that.
