Description Svata Dedic 2014-09-16 11:09:38 UTC
The Editor API contains a lot of dependencies on Swing. Many of content manipulation code however does not need to work in a Swing-based environment, access to plain Document (or StyledDocument) would be sufficient. Editor APIs however expose BaseDocument, which derives from Swing AbstractDocument and the APIs reference a lot of Swing classes.

I proposed to create a dedicated Document interface + move content manipulation utilities to a separate module, editor.document as outlined in the wiki -

The change can be seen live in the server_split branch of jet-main hg repository.
