Following is the java code to read the doc file and print it on console. and in the same way, if you can print it on console then you can set in a textarea also. When it comes to read Microsoft Office Word document, Java does not have any in build classes to handle this but Apache POI Package developed by Apache Foundation gives you the power of reading Microsoft Word document in Java. More information on the Apache POI package can be found at Apache POI-Click Here

import org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.*;
import org.apache.poi.hwpf.*;
import org.apache.poi.hwpf.extractor.*;

public class ReadDoc
public static void main( String[] args )
String filesname = "Hello.doc";
POIFSFileSystem fs = null;
fs = new POIFSFileSystem(new FileInputStream(filesname;
//Couldn´t close the braces at the end as my site did not allow it to close

HWPFDocument doc = new HWPFDocument(fs);

WordExtractor we = new WordExtractor(doc);

String[] paragraphs = we.getParagraphText();

System.out.println( "Word Document has " + paragraphs.length + " paragraphs" );
for( int i=0; i<paragraphs .length; i++ ) {
paragraphs[i] = paragraphs[i].replaceAll("\\cM?\r?\n","");
System.out.println( "Length:"+paragraphs[ i ].length());
catch(Exception e) {
