Sure, it's all open source:)  See
http://www.artofsolving.com/opensource/jodconverter for details.  I
used the standalone version, http://www.artofsolving.com/node/14.
Requires Open Office running as a daemon, Tomcat, and JRE6 (Jave
Runtime Environment).  Pretty much ran out of the box, I just needed
to upgrade my JRE.
