Size Textarea on Win95<>Solaris ??

With Sun's JDK 1.0.2 i can create a textarea with a String with a size > 100 K, the same code fails under Windows 95.  How can i work around this problem ?? (another prove that Java is NOT platform independant !!)
Well i should correct this a little bit :
Making a String of > 200 K is no problem (with Win95 or Solaris), but when i want to put it into a textarea, nothing happens with Win95 and it works fine with Solaris.
So :
String MyString=new String(...);   //assume it has a size >64K
TextArea xx=new TextArea(MyString) //Does NOT load the text in MyString with Win95 bnut works fine with Solaris.

Is this a bug in the awt implementation (it also happens with JDK 1.1) for Win95 ??  And if so, how can i work around it ??

Platform independent IS ! Well more then less.
Problem is in limitations in some ports, like in this case in WINDOW$$. Probably they have limited how many you can store in this class (String). :((
People make it not independent. Idea is too good to be true :(

Use more String classes to hold all datas.

Using more Strings is a comment i also had figured out.  The problem is how can i 'insert' those String portions into the textarea object without special interaction from the user.  It is (in my opinion) necessary to catch the scrollbar events from the textarea.  This would have given my a solution which i could work on.
'Using  more string classes to hold all data' is not an answer because a String can hold > 32K data, the textarea doesn't.  Fixing that was the real question !!!

stoffels,

try this:

Textarea t = new Textarea(columns, rows);
String mystring = new String();
mystring = whatever;
t.append(mystring);

hope this helps.
