I have similar requirements as this guy: data-binding-java-f16/can-i-add-content-controls-in-word-without-any-add-inn-t1987.html
Unfortunately that thread seems dead, so I post a new topic. I need to create relatively simple documents (invoices for now). I have to rely on non-technical users for maintaining the templates and don't want to burden them with additional tools. Hence the requirement to prepare the template completely in Word.
I've skimmed through the getting started guide and a few samples, but this seems more complicated than I had (naively) assumed. I described where I got stuck here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3158 ... ith-docx4j
My question here is: Is this even a reasonable idea? If yes, what am I missing? If not, what might be a reasonable alternative (easy to implement, as little tool overhead for non-technical users as possible)?
If I come across as total doc manipulation noob here: sorry, but that's what I actually am. So if you know about a good hands-on tutorial for my use case, I'd be very thankful for that too.
