I was trying to use JEditorPane and was able to sucessfully use same except two problems:
1. When mouse comes over the link it doesnot change to "hand cursor". DoI have to use customise cursor? pl help me. if possible can you provide me code snppet.
2. now when a html page comes into the pane and if I click at a button provided in the page it gives me error.

Hi Arun,
try this.
public void hyperlinkUpdate(HyperlinkEvent evt)
//Swing itself doesn't change the cursor when mouse moves over the link. so
if (evt.getEventType() == HyperlinkEvent.EventType.ENTERED) {
JEditorPane pane = (JEditorPane) evt.getSource();
// Enter event. Go the the "hand" cursor and fill in the status bar
else if (evt.getEventType() == HyperlinkEvent.EventType.EXITED) {
JEditorPane pane = (JEditorPane) evt.getSource();
// Exit event. Go back to the default cursor and clear the status bar
else if (evt.getEventType() == HyperlinkEvent.EventType.ACTIVATED)
I agree. Here's the link:
