  1. JTextComponent describes the common behavior shared by all text components:
  2. a Highlighter for selection support,
  3. a Caret for navigation throughout the content,
  4. a set of commands supported through the actions property (an array of Action implementers),
  5. a set of key bindings through a Keymap or InputMap/ActionMap combination,
  6. an implementation of the Scrollable interface so that each of the specific text components can be placed within a JScrollPane, and the text stored within the component.
