Package org.openide.text Description

NetBeans is able to integrate multiple editors for different content types and mechanically access their content.

Using the Editor API, it is possible to get access to the Swing-based editor which is being used to edit an open file of whatever content type. This would permit you to test what the user was doing with this file; mechanically retrieve and modify text from the open buffer; prevent certain areas of a textual file from being modified by the user; set annotations in the gutter; and so on.

This API also permits a module implementor to add a custom editor for some or all (probably textual) content types. Essentially, any editor implementation may be used which is capable of being embedded as a Swing EditorKit; handling guarded blocks; and handling breakpoints and the like (for Java source).
