I am developing on application in swing. I want to display some big data on JFrame. If I display a big string on frame, it does not go to next line when it ends at the current line as it works on pixel. What is the solution for this. How people display data generatlly.

In my case I have 5 fields. something like key value. but value is big string. Please help on this.

Thanks in advance.
