I', new here are fairly new to C++ so please excuse my ignorance! I'm undertaking a project at the moment which requires me to hook into a custom c++ application from a Java applet via JNI. The c++ application needs to communicate with MS Word and potentially other office programmes in order to highlight text and offer find/replace functionality programatically. The idea is that when the applet is launched, it will communicate with the C++ methods to hook into an open MS Word document and highlight all words that start with the letter 't' for example.
I'm concentrating on the C++ side of things first and i'm just wondering whether anyone can point me in the right direction? Even some basic access to an open word document would give me a great start!
