HTML Viewer in Java

I have a String of text formatted with HTML tags. I am trying to display this text in my Java application the way it would look if displayed in the browser. That is I am looking for an HTML viewer/editor component.

Swing seems to have an HTML editor but I can't quite figure out how to use it.  I would appreciate if someone could  present a code which takes an html string and displays it with all the HTML formatting on the screen in some kind of text area using HTMLEditorKit from Swing or some other component.

Take a look at:

http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Way/7979/html.html

it contains a free Java based (applet) web browser that you could easily port to your needs.

If you need a complete browser/editor solution you are going to have to purchase it.

There is a good comertial browser/editor class at:

Hope this helps

Thanks for the pointers. I ended up using the HotJava HTML component from Sun.
