          You can't directly import java code into Director. You could try porting the code from Java to Director's javascript language, but you may find it difficult because there will be a huge difference in the way you create and refer to visual elements within Director.

          What does your text editor do? It may turn out to be fairly easy to reproduce some of its features in director.

          Another alternative would be to compile your java text editor into an exe, and launch the exe from a director movie. You could have it edit a specific temporary text file, which Director could then read in when the editor is quit.

          hope this helps!
