I assume you are using apache POI to create the word doc?
In that case you should be able to perform a file upload from your JSP/servlet app (there are 1000's of examples on file upload out there on the web, just search for "jsp file upload example") and insert the image using the API (I'm going to blindly assume that the API supports this).
I'm going to blindly assume that the API supports this.
I don't believe so. POI can extract images from a doc file, but to my knowledge not insert images. POI's features regarding creating and changing DOC files (as opposed to reading them) are rather limited.
Hi Ulf, thanks for the clarification, I should be a little less lazy and check these things . <scurries off>, right I've actually looked at their site and API and I can see that it supports embedding png files into Excel spreadsheets but indeed doesn't appear to support inserting images into Word docs (in fact there is a TODO on their web site for better support around this area).

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
