    Default How to know the exact word on which the mouse is, in a JTextArea

    In a textarea, suppose a mouse is clicked at a certain place. How to find on which word was the mouse clicked. Is there any support in Java to do this?

    You can add a CaretListener to your JTextArea. Then you can use methods of String class to detect start and end of the word on which the mouse is.
