Hi! All!
I need to open and read ( to convert later ) an MS word document through Java.
Is there a way to do the same?? Are there libraries ( in Java ) available to do the same??
Please help me on the same.

I would guess that you need to use a Microsoft dll and some JNI - but I have never tried this.

It would probably be easiest to use an external program to convert the document. There are plenty available.

Hi! Cindy and David!
Thanks a lot for replying..
Anyway I m sure there must be some external programs to do the same.. I also looked up catdoc which is a dos/linux based executable.
Now although the source for linux is given it uses some gnu library calls which I am unfortunately unable to compile under my trusted TC compiler. I need something that converts the $ documents to pure gool old ascii files.
If you chance upon any please let me know by posting the same here and / or mailing me gkasinath@hotmail.com
Thanks a lot!!
