    Since random access to data stored in a file is not easy or practical, one typically works on the data, in this case text, in memory. Load the data from the text file into memory and search the data, deleting, modifying etc. as needed. When done, write the result back to the file.

    Hello.
    Use JTextArea on your GUI component. Whenever you open/work with a file load the file contents into this text area.
    Add TextListener to the text area. Whenever the text changed event takes place copy the contents back to the original file.

    Coming to search, GregBrannon already gave the idea. Just cache the file contents and search.
