For a swing text editor I found this sample with some more formatting:
The save/read use java Serialization. If you don't like that you can read the StyledDocument content and store it in your desired format and then build a StyledDocument from it when you open it.
For the status you can register a DocumentListener to the document and make some tokenizing and counting.
For spell checking you can use as is or as source of inspiration for highlighting wrong spelled words and other stuff.
