1. An editor in which user can write java code..
I mean java programs and if user will type an object name then respective method names should come up in drop down..
Similar to eclipse / netbeans..
But the editor should have some jar files, those I can use in my swing application .

2.It should also give compilation errors.

Maybe you can rip out an editing component from one of these projects, or embed them in your application: http://java-source.net/open-source/ides

No, I can't - I've never looked into this myself. But some of those tools do what was asked, and since they're open source, everyone can check out what they do (and possibly even use some of their code, license permitting).
