i want to print output in textarea
my output is continuous ,when connection with particular socket is established,which is a reader, it reads continuous tags.
so what i appended the variable in which tha tag value has been stored to text area
but problem is that it is not appending as output is so continuous & variable value is changing continuously

so i am not getting anything in textarea, so what is the way to read fast & continuous output

This should not happen as the JTextArea#append is thread safe.

Can you post your code which demonstrates this problem?

Sam,
When I said "code which demonstrates this problem", I meant http://homepage1.nifty.com/algafield/sscce.html

Also please use code tags
