I'm trying to determine how much separation I need to put between our main application and our Word integration. Is it possible to completely restart the COM stack while inside a JVM, or do I have to restart the whole JVM?

The process would be based on progress notifications (API) and hang detection (timeout) while processing a task in a thread.

If I can reinitialise, then I'll do that; otherwise I'll just have to kill the app and rely on the tanuki service wrapper to restart the application.
