Actually I have the below cases :

Case1 : "the collection was guaranteed.i'm sure it is"
Case2 : the collection was guaranteed.i'm sure it is
Case2 : the collection was guaranteed...i'm sure it isThese cases i want to reflect using a swing window.Which will accept these cases.

Conditions :

In case1 , since the text is surrounded by "" it should not do anything.

second case, since the data is not surrounded by "", the "." should be highlighted (if the "." is single) in yellow.

In 3rd case sine the "." is preceded or followed by another "." it should be left as it is.

i've tried the below swing code.

this code works fine,but, the problem is that the input is taken in the console and the output is shown in a swing window. and i want input to be in a textarea, a button, and clicking it the output should be displayed in second textarea. please refer the below screenshot for reference.

please help me doing this.

You need to add the missing GUI components and remove the scanner code.
You will also need to add an ActionListener to the button to get the text from the first text area, process it and display it in the second text area.
I agree. Here's the link:
