Dear Shrinivas,
when it comes to macintosh os x 10.2.3, applet is coming and doing its functionality but the word doc is not opening, saying that "exception reading file, system cannot find the file specified.

The problem is of Volume Name of HDD. Mac OS X needs the full path including the Volume name. Try to get the volume name of the HDD using the getAbsolutePath method.
Hope this helps.
