how can java be able to understand the ms word template codes.

for eg. to read a particular ms word template and insert data in the relevant fields in the template.

any thoughts?

can it be done for pdf files too?

MS Word is a Microsoft-specific binary format.
What you are really asking is how to parse that
format and extract certain information from it.
My suggestion is to get a copy of the specification -
this will tell you exactly how the data is stored so
you can write your own class to do exactly what you
need. The same is true of PDF format, except PDF
is a much more open standard than Word.
