my new project is a simple word processor. like Wordpad only probably even simpler. one of the first decisions is whether to use an editor pane or a text pane. my first impression is to use an editor pane because it seems to handle plain text better. i am reading the tutorials, but any advice is appreciated.

i noticed the tutorial here
uses a JTextPane.

this is a great project if you happen to be stuck without one. i am going to learn a great many new things from it.

JtextPane extends JEditorPane class , it has all the features of JEditorPane along with them it provides several additional features!!! so it makes sense to use JTextPane as it provides for lot of additional features, if you are not using those additional features then you can well use JeditorPane.
