we are developing a web based application called document management system which is being developed using java,springs and hibernate technology.
Here we have a requirement for opening ms word, excel documents in the browser after clicking the document link and then the documents should be editable in the browser itself ,when save button clicked it should get saved on the server. Can anyone please tell how to do this.

Microsoft already offer their SkyDrive cloud-based storage for Office documents etc and you can use SkyDrive to edit Office documents in the browser using MS Web Apps.
Google Apps already provides the ability to store and edit Office-like documents in the browser, or to use Google Apps to sync your MS Office files between clients.
I don't know how much this development project is costing your company, but it might be cheaper to use an existing document management service than re-invent this particular wheel.
