hi there. i would like to get some idea on this

i want to use a textpane and make it act like a compiler
will detect reserved words and change its color different from normal texts

my idea is a separate class of enum containing the reserved words and the text pane should have a document listener or such...

somebody help me started please. correct my concept if im wrong
