Are there any java libraries/api that deal with MS Word (kinda like jExcel for MS Excel)?  All I need to do is read in a MS Word template and plug in data in specific places.

There is no api so far to read the MS word from JAVA. "Jakarta.apache" who usually create APIs for java to do different stuffs which sun dont have are I believe working on that.

Hope that helps.

I believe that the Apache projects are no longer active.  There is a commercial product from Aspose.

Allows you to manipulate word docs without having MS Word installed - so you can run from non-windows platforms if you like.
