The first step is to be able to connect to an Access database from your application -- have you configured a connection to Access, and can you successfully retrieve data?
Then you need to be able to read the bytes of the document as an array of bytes. Again if you are using JDBC properly this should be easy.
That's it, but I assume you want to do something with these bytes like write it to a client browser? It's as simple as writing the array of bytes to a JSP's output, but you will need to set some headers like "Content-Type" in order to make the browser recognize what you are sending as a Word doc, and open it in Word.
