large file in JTextArea

  Asked By: Mona    Date: Nov 15    Category: Java    Views: 857

Does anyone have experience reading a large txt file (maybe 5MB) into
a JTextArea? I've tries using the .read() and using a
BufferedFileReader to append lines to the JTextArea. Both have proved
to be inefficient.

Read it all into a string first, then add it to the JTextArea.
