JTextComponents incorrectly claim to be partly thread safe

    Details

      Description

      Some methods of JTextComponens claim to be "thread safe",
      see for example JTextComponent.setText() its javadoc says:
      <This method is thread safe, although most Swing methods are not>

      But looking to its implementation it's quite obvious that it isn't thread safe
      if I setText() on one thread and getText() on another thread
      it will likely cause a problem

      Current situation: text package claim some of their methods as thread safe

      Expected: No misleading note about thread safety
