    How to read doc file?

    It is ok to read .txt file using the following code?
    But it does not work for reading a doc file.
    How can a doc file can be read?

    try {
    			InputStream is = fileconnection.openInputStream();
    			StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
    			int chr, i = 0;
    			// Read until the end of the stream 
    			while ((chr = is.read()) != -1)
    			sb.append((char) chr);
    			Alert alert=new Alert("",sb.toString(),null,AlertType.INFO);
    		} catch (IOException e) {
    			// TODO Auto-generated catch block

    Re: How to read doc file?

    Same way for starters (use JSR-75, FileConnection API to open and read the file contents), but then you need to also know how to handle the .doc file format itself. There's no support for that in J2ME.

    You could take a look at the LibreOffice source code to see how .doc file are handled, or get .doc file format specifications from Microsoft.

    LibreOffice is here: http://www.documentfoundation.org/download/

    It might, however, be too big a thing to implement (Microsoft .doc file support in J2ME).
