The API for javax.swing.text.TextAction says:
This is determined by being used in conjunction with a JTextController which arranges to share that information with a TextAction.


I've searched src.zip and rt.jar and can't locate JTextController. Does anyone know where this came from, or is it just a documentation bug?

Only reasonable reference I found was here http://www2.htw-dresden.de/~beck/JAVA11/SWING/api/com.sun.java.swing.text.DefaultTextController.html
Notice the JAVA11 in the URL. Could be 1.1 or 11. I doubt if its 1.1 because of the JTextController

It could well be Java 1.1, since Swing used to work with Java 1.1 (although it was shipped separately). Possibly a class that was part of very early Swing versions, but was then removed and nobody ever bothered to update the javadocs.

I was not aware of this. I took it that Swing was since 1.2

Thanks, Maneesh and Ulf. I guess it might have been part of Swing before Swing was made a part of core.

That's a hoot, given that it may take 5 years or more for acknowledged bugs to get fixed.
