This component is a simple editor component which is intended for editing
syntax documents such as program code or XML documents. The code base for this
component is the editor component of a very early release of the great
jEdit text editor. The component has been
modified to be usable as a 'regular' editor component in the fashion of J2SE 1.4.
In this meaning it is embeddable into a JScrollPane component and provides
mouse wheel support. Because of that, this component only works with J2SE 1.4 or later!
Here's a screenshot that shows what it looks like:
Further I've implemented nice features such as a poweful search-replace dialog, which is opened autmatically by using the standard key binding (Ctrl+F).
