The implemented AbstractDocument.Content used to store the characters is a character array. When the Java Virtual Machine dies it is because of something else. Although, 24 MB is a really large text file. Are you writing a hex editor? If so, then maybe you should write your own document.

> JTextArea's PlainDocument seems to be the limitation in putting very large amounts of text into a JTextArea (over 9m characters, for instance). I believe the approach is to replace the AbstractDocument.Content with something that is very simple. I would like a bit of help in getting started on this. Basically, I need read-only so no inserts, deletes, etc -- a String model or byte[] should be sufficient.
