Did you ever get the library from this post? We have a need to convert whole, large, whole tables worth of RTF information into something usable and would rather not reinvent if possible.

Probably can't/don't want to do this in the database.
You can use Apache Tika to convert RTF to plain text: http://tika.apache.org/1.4/formats.html#Rich_Text_Format
Tika internally uses javax.swing.text.rtf for this.
