Text Editor

Java Text Editor

We are building a text editor using Java.

It is based on the Pure Java Font Renderer.

We will initially be targetting Java 1.1, Personal Java devices - and possibly other J2ME profiles.

Demonstration applet

Currently the text editor is at an embryonic stage.

The following demonstration shows a document displayed in a scrollable window.

It is intended primarily to give some indication of rendering performance.

It illustrates font rendering using:

  • Anti aliasing;
  • Drop shadows;
  • Textured backgrounds;
  • Background blending.
