There is not a way, that I am aware of, to read an MS Word document in Java.
MS Word is encoded in a proprietary format that Java cannot easily navigate.
Reading a text file, on the other hand, can be handled in Java. Want you
want are the classes made available in the java.io package. You will want
to open a stream to the document, read the contents (or a portion of them)
into your program, and then perform whatever processing your program requires.
I have provided three links that I think you will find helpful:
