Position.Bias A typesafe enumeration to indicate bias to a position in the model.
Segment A segment of a character array representing a fragment of text.
SimpleAttributeSet A straightforward implementation of MutableAttributeSet using a hash table.
StringContent An implementation of the AbstractDocument.Content interface that is a brute force implementation that is useful for relatively small documents and/or debugging.

TableView Implements View interface for a table, that is composed of an element structure where the child elements of the element this view is responsible for represent rows and the child elements of the row elements are cells.
TabSet A TabSet is comprised of many TabStops.
TabStop This class encapsulates a single tab stop (basically as tab stops are thought of by RTF).
TextAction An Action implementation useful for key bindings that are shared across a number of different text components.
Utilities A collection of methods to deal with various text related activities.
View A very important part of the text package is the View class.
WrappedPlainView View of plain text (text with only one font and color) that does line-wrapping.
ZoneView ZoneView is a View implementation that creates zones for which the child views are not created or stored until they are needed for display or model/view translations.
 

Exception Summary
BadLocationException This exception is to report bad locations within a document model (that is, attempts to reference a location that doesn't exist).
ChangedCharSetException ChangedCharSetException as the name indicates is an exception thrown when the charset is changed.
 

Package javax.swing.text Description

Provides classes and interfaces that deal with editable and noneditable text components. Examples of text components are text fields and text areas, of which password fields and document editors are special instantiations. Features that are supported by this package include selection/highlighting, editing, style, and key mapping.

Note: Most of the Swing API is not thread safe. For details, see Threads and Swing, a section in The Java Tutorial.
