Inserting text in JTextArea

i am developing a simple application in Java and i wanted to know if there is any way i can insert additional text(somewhere in the middle of a sentence) inside a textarea , which is not empty, at a position where the cursor is placed on the click of some component. Can someone please direct me how to go about getting it done


If this is a JTextArea component you can use the .append method to add text to the end of the text area, or the .insert method to insert the new text at a specific position.

If you need to insert the text at the current cursor position use the (not-so-obviously-named) .getCaretPosition method
