RMI + JTextComponent problem

My GUI application is based on RMI.
Application allows to add tabs to JTabbedPane, which contains editable text components. Operation is possible on client side (normal invocation) and on server side (REMOTE invocation).
When client is adding tab everything is OK. But when tab is added through remote invocation problem occurs. Though carriage is visible (it means component is editable) text component doesnt react when key is typed and it is impossible to write something in this component.

If anyone have ideas about how resolve this problem I would be pleased.

Hmmm... can you post some of your code?

This sounds like you might be updating the GUI outside of the event thread... see this article on Sun's webiste - Threads and Swing.
