I am trying to read word document using Apache POI package but getting following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.poi.hwpf.model.CHPBinTable.<init>([B[BIIILorg/apache/poi/hwpf/model/TextPieceTable;)V

I am using poi-scratchpad-3.5-FINAL.jar file. I look forward for any help/guidance in this regard.

The usual reason is that two different library versions (in this case: POI) are used for compiling the code and for running the code.
