Does the latest version SCJP 1.5 (Java 5) support editing MS office documents (word, excel, ppt etc.), and is there a certain package to
perform these operations?

There are probably some third-party packages that accomplish this, but nothing explicit in Sun's API. (Well... In a Servlet, you can set the response type as Excel, but I don't think that's what you're asking.)

In any case, this is not a topic for the SCJP exam, so I'll move this thread to Java in General (beginners).

Have a look at Apache POI.
