You can try my code
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class TextArea1b extends JApplet {
JTextArea jTA;
JPanel jp1,jp2;
JScrollPane jSPan;
JButton but1;
Point vp;
JViewport viewport;
public void init()
{
Container c = getContentPane();
jp1 = new JPanel();
jp2 = new JPanel();
String s = "Now is the\n" +
"time for all good men\n" +
"to come to the\n" +
"aid of their party.";
jTA = new JTextArea(s, 4, 20);
but1 = new JButton("scroll downwards");
c.setBounds(new Rectangle(0,0,400,400));
JScrollPane jSPan = new JScrollPane(JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS,JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS);
viewport = jSPan.getViewport();
viewport.add(jTA);
c.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
c.add(jp1);
c.add(jp2);
jp1.setBackground(Color.BLACK);
jp2.setBackground(Color.RED);
jp2.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
jp2.add(jSPan,BorderLayout.CENTER);
jp2.add(but1,BorderLayout.SOUTH);
but1.addActionListener(new ActionListener()
{
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
vp = viewport.getViewPosition();
vp.y+=10;
viewport.setViewPosition(vp);
}
});
}
}
The Jtextarea does not refresh well after I have clicked the button.

The problem is that the JTextArea isn't large enough to continue scrolling down... add some newlines to the end of the text...
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
