    Do you mean to write or program a Java editor with (I assume) syntax checking and other similar advanced programming editor features, or do you simply mean to acquire and install one that already exists, like Netbeans or Eclipse (Geany, Vim, Notepad+ etc., etc.)?

    Or do you mean how do you build your own editor out of Swing components?

    You're going to have to be a lot more specific. What have you tried? Where are you stuck? What do google and the tutorials tell you?

    Hi, Renu Nataraj. Welcome to the forum! Please specify, if you want to make a Text Editor it's not that hard. You'll just have to read up on How to Make Frames (Main Windows) (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components). The URL redirects you to the JFame documentation. If you read it, the rest will be crystal clear. Read up on swing components like JButton, JMenuBar, and others. Check out How to Write an Action Listener (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Writing Event Listeners) too (ActionListener).

    If you want to make a Java compiler/syntax checker. It is beyond my knowledge.
