Hi all,
I am working on a J2EE project and users need automatic document generation. The imposed tool is MS Word. Then, I will have several MSW templates that must be filled by data available through the J2EE platform (mainly EJB).
I have very few experience of the .net platform and I am wondering how to make a bridge between the J2EE application platform and the word automation.
Thanks a lot
Seb

Sounds like a good reason to use web services since you can communicate in platform independent XML.
To do this, your J2EE app would expose the functionality through a web service, and then somebody would write some VB/macros/etc to access the web service and populate the document.
