Hi,

I am looking for a API which could read/write Richtext MS word documents. I came across Apache POI, which they say not good for processing rich text content.

My need is that, the API should be good enough to read MS Word Forms.

Any other APIs?, Please let me know.

Thanks,
Shinelin

MS Word files are hard to read and write. OpenOffice may be a good solution for you. Another option is using RTF. It's supported by both Wordpad and MS Word and can do most things MS Word files can do. iText is able to write RTF files.
