Message One assumption that seems to have been made in the discussion you need to
"push" from Java to Word, this may not be best approach.

I would consider implementing a "pull" arrangement in Word, where you load
the XMI into a DOM, and then in Word's internal Visual Basic for
Applications (gasp!)or other COM native environment traverse the DOM while
creating Word document.

A recommended option is to transform (using XSLT) the XMI DOM close to the
target DOM you would be writing as your Word documentation, this would make
your VBA very simple.

I believe that this way of doing it really uses the promise of XMI as a tool
neutral interchange mechanism. With this approach is you can make Words docs
from any XMI source. er, compatability allowing.

BTW I would in general be against using Word.
