Document conversion PDF to MS doc and vice versa

Hello everyone,
Can you tell me how to convert MS word documents to PDF format and vice versa.. I'm working on a project which requires me to do this..
Is there any jar files specific for this kind of conversion?
Do we have to convert these into XML format first? If so, how to go about it..
I've looked into POI, FOP and PDFBox.. which according to you provides easier implementation... Also, if you could send me any link to a suitable example, i'd be really grateful!
Thanks in Advance,

The Apache POI and FOP projects are the way to go. Google for their home pages
for examples and everything else you ever wanted to know about document
conversion, formatting etc. All it takes is a bit of reading.

kind regards,
