About RapidSpell Java Desktop

Add spell check value to any GUI/nonGUI textual Java application (email, word processor etc) with a couple of lines of code.

RapidSpell Desktop Java can also be used on servers to provide spell checking functionality. A clean API and no native code mean a rapid and simple implementation task. Uses combined or separate customisable 140,000 word U.S. & U.K. dictionaries (and user dictionary), multi-threaded GUI and a powerful suggestion engine.


RapidSpell provides 2 spelling Swing Beans to add checking functionality to your Swing GUI or non GUI (eg; console/server) applications. The GUI Bean provides all the usual features, add, change, change all, ignore, ignore all, and smart suggestions. It interactively checks ANY JTextComponent derived component such as JEditorPane, JTextPane, JTextArea and JTextField - checks selections, whole documents with wrap at end, highlights errors, accepts manual corrections, allows user to edit main document during spell check and also supports a user dictionary. The main dictionary may be customized or created from scratch with our free Dict Manager tool. The nonGUI Bean provides core spell checker functionality suitable for deep integration, user interface rewrites or console applications. It has been clocked at 50,000 words/sec on a basic 1GHz PC.

RapidSpell has built-in multi-lingual support, offering the GUI in several languages.


Written to JDK1.2.2 specification, will work with future versions. The API was carefully designed to provide for easy customisation of the GUI by simply extending its class and overriding the design method (an example of this is included). The GUI is 99% customisable, taking your look & feel with out constraint, supporting your icons etc. The Beans are loadable into any IDE or RAD tool that supports JavaBeans. The non GUI Bean provides core functionality and ease of use - you pass the text you want checked and then iterate through each misspelt word finding suggestions and correcting as you go. You have access to the corrected text at any time.
