Welcome to JavaRanch.

That depends on what you want to do with the file contents. Fundamentally, RTF is just a text file, so you can use the File, FileInputStream and various Reader classes in the java.io package.

If you want to display RTF in a Swing component, have a look at this sample application which does exactly that.

Keep in mind that RTF is not really a standard. Microsoft documents it poorly and amends it whenever it sees fit. That said, reading an RTF file can be as easy as:

JEditorPane jep = new JEditorPane("application/rtf", "");
jep.read(new FileInputStream("path/to/file.rtf"), null);
yourContainer.add(new JScrollPane(jep));

I hope this is helpful.
