i found a solution :
i opened that text read line by line and printed the output on a textpane that is added to a scrollpane(for resizing depending on the size of the text) and i added all this to a dialog

i also set the textpane editable to false so that no user can change my help
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
