Interactive console using Swing

Hi,

I am trying to implement an application administrative tool with interactive
console
(i.e. showing some info to the user and taking user input) using Swing and
JDK 1.4.

Up until now I have done info display part after selecting items from the
menu
(using JTextArea and append() ),
but now I realized that user input has to be provided and processed.

I don't see that I can associate an i/o stream with JTextArea. Is there a
way to do that ?

Or is there other Swing widget better suitable for that ?

Please advise.

Thank you in advance,
Oleg.

"titlebarTextString" );
