From the HWPF page:
HWPF is still in early development. It is in the scratchpad section of the SVN.


SVN being their install of Subversion. The easiest thing would be to install the Subversion client and do a checkout of all the relevant source.

The site states that, but actually the POI download includes the scratchpad classes (including HWPF) as a jar file. So you just need to download the binary, and include all jar files in your classpath.
