Hi Experts,
I need to display a few paragraphs of text in a Java Swing Application.
The users should be able to interact with the text in multiple ways
for example:
highlight sentences
add in between the sentences.
edit the sentences etc
you get the idea.
I know these tasks are pretty easy in a web application.
What component or combinations of components should I use for this kind of requirment?
Jtextpane? SwingX?
Thanks in advance guys

Sounds like a JTextArea or perhaps JEditorPane

Thanks.
Actually looks like editor pane might be more suitable to me.

Editor Pane is sufficient for my needs.
But TextPane which inherits EditorPane seems more useful in many other ways.
