I do not think it is possible to remove the caret in the TextArea, but try this:

When the TextArea gets the focus you can remove the focus by setting the focus elsewhere in your applet. No focus, no caret!

Sorry. but I haven't heard about such a compenent. If you REALLY want to get rid of the caret, then you maybe should consider making your own compenent. But that is another question, and at that point I can't help you.
