28.2 Reading a File on a Web Server
The application in Fig. 28.1 uses Swing GUI component JEditorPane (from package
javax.swing) to display the contents of a file on a web server. The user enters a URL in the
JTextField at the top of the window, and the application displays the corresponding document (if it exists) in the
JEditorPane is able to render both plain text and basic HTML-formatted text, as illustrated in the two screen captures (Fig. 28.2), so this application acts as a simple web browser. The application also demonstrates how to process HyperlinkEvents when the user clicks a hyperlink in the HTML document.
