Note: As of POI 3.15, this code no longer compiles, and it's not clear how it can be fixed. Creating DOCX files (rather than DOC files) is apparently possible; see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13507424/how-to-create-a-word-document-using-apache-poi for basic code.

This program shows how to use Apache POI HWPF to create a Word document. It sets various font and paragraph properties (like bold, italic, center alignment and first line indent), and adds a custom document property. For more options, check out the JavaDoc:org.apache.poi.hwpf.usermodel.Paragraph and JavaDoc:org.apache.poi.hwpf.usermodel.CharacterRun classes. For some reason, HWPF can't create a document from scratch, so an empty document ('empty.doc') needs to be present when the code is run.
