Other possibilities include creating RDF (Resource Development Framework) or HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) files. You can also create any file that OpenOffice can import then export to Word.
It has a number of subprojects including POIFS for OLE (Object Linking & Embedding) 2 Compound Documents, HSSF for Microsoft Excel 97(-XP) spreadsheet documents and HWPF (Horrible Word Processor Format) for Microsoft Word 97(-XP) word processing documents.
You format Word documents by defining nested styles with HWPF then applying styles to hunks of text.
POI is not what I would call developer friendly. You can get the source with CVS and build it yourself. There are some unlabelled binaries you can find by diligently poking around directories on one of the download mirrors.

If you disagree with something I said, especially when sending an ad-hominem attack, a rant composed mainly of obscenities or a death threat, please quote the offending passage and cite the web page where you found it, tell me why you think it is wrong, and, if possible, provide some supporting evidence. I can’t very well fix erroneous or ambiguous text if I can’t find it.
