I have a JTextArea and it's riding ontop of a JScrollPane. Anyways, I know I can use the `getViewPort()` method to set the opaque of of the view port... but I cannot seem to find any sign of how to do that... anywhere. :S

Here is what I have so far:
     if (e.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_F)
    {
    	if (sp.isVisible())
    	{
    		sp.setVisible(false);
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		sp.setVisible(true);
    	}
    }

Make the JTextArea transparent ... like 50%? make it see through.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Maybe I can set the background of a JScrollPane to a .gif image which is 50% transparent?

I'm guessing r,g,b is an int ... should be like:
c.setBackground(new Color(255,255,255, 127));
