In Swing how to add scrollbar to textarea b'coz by default it doesn't take it.

From the JTextArea AIP: The java.awt.TextArea internally handles scrolling. JTextArea is different in that it doesn't manage scrolling, but implements the swing Scrollable interface. This allows it to be placed inside a JScrollPane if scrolling behavior is desired, and used directly if scrolling is not desired. So you add your JTextArea to a JScrollPane.
