Use a JEditorPane and add it to your JFrame:


            JEditorPane pane = new JEditorPane();
            try {
                  pane.getEditorKit().read(new java.io.FileReader("yourFile.txt"), pane.getDocument(), 0);
            }
            catch (Exception e) {
                  e.printStackTrace();
            }
            getContentPane().add(pane, BorderLayout.CENTER);

you could use JOptionPane:
JOptionPane.showInternalMessageDialog(frame, "information","information", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);

or:
JDialog dialog = new JDialog();
//use what CEHJ suggest. Replace the last instruction with the following
dialog.getContentPane().add(pane,BorderLayout.CENTER);
dialog.show();


Bye, Giant.
