When dumping stuff into a text area how do you set up the side scroll bar so you can move up and down the text area to view info?

Instantiate the scrollPane and add it to the textarea. Now add this scrollpane to your JPanel.

The link shows you how.

Technically, you add the JTextArea as a child of the JScrollPane.
