setLineWrap(boolean) is used for line wrapping policy of textarea..
 If set to true the lines will be wrapped if they are too long to fit within the allocated width. If set to false, the lines will always be unwrapped.

Syntax.
 textarea.setLineWrap(true);

Just don't use horizontal scrollbars:

new TextArea("", 0, 0, TextArea.SCROLLBARS_VERTICAL_ONLY);
