i have several text douments(UTF-8 format) of different languages.i'm
getting a problem while trying to load that text into
jTextArea(javax.swing package) . i want to know whether the swings
components support multi language font, if please tell me how to solve

while im trying to display the langauge Tamil , java.awt.TextArea is able to show that font
where as javax.swing.JTextArea is not supporting,showing in some unreadable format
I just want to use javax.swing.JTextArea , can i use that in such conditions

code :
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(f);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new
InputStreamReader(fis , "UTF-8"));
while( (s = br.readLine()) != null)
sb = sb.append(s + " ");
String[] st = sb.toString().split("\\s");
for(int i = 0 ; i < st.length ; i++)
sb2 = sb2.append(st[i] + " ");

sb2 is the final string that will be used as jTextArea1.setText(sb2.toSTring());

You have posted a duplicate question.

Please don't do that. It's not in your best interests. It tends to make people not want to help you.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
