Can any one tell me, what i have to do if the String Object holds data more than 20-22MB of data.
The string object holds that much of data and then the same data have to be displayed in a text area.
i am doing something like this:
private void doReadFile(BufferedReader fileReader) {
String strial = "";
String s = "";
if(fileReader != null)
ivjTextArea1.append("One Moment Please.....");
while ((s=fileReader.readLine()) != null)
strial = temptrial.toString();
} catch(Throwable exception){
