    Default Reading and Writing Word Documents


    I apologize if this is in the wrong section.
    I'm trying to read in and write to a word document, however, I'm not sure how to do so. I'm looking for API's that could help with this. I looked at apahce poi but I'm not sure if it can do what I need it to. The trickiest part is to create links that link to different parts of the word document (I forgot the correct term). If it is not possible to allow for these links, then I can leave them out.

    Basically, the program takes in a word document and sorts the information in it. I will attach the file before it has been sorted and then after.

    This question doesn't seem to have anything to do with the Java SE classes that do I/O.
    I don't know where questions about third part APIs goes.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
