[John Cavacas] 
My findings would concur with yours, as in it is a real pain to do. There
are a couple of ways that it probably could be done. Using a Java/COM
bridge, delegating the building of the document to a third party such as a
.net web service, which in turn its just a .net COM app that ties to Word.
Both of those are possible, but there is one significant potential problem
every time you deal with COM and Word. You essentially need to start a word
instance every time you want to do something.
