How can I get the position of the mouse pointer in a TextArea so that I can insert a String at that position?

The mouse position is represented by the caret in the text area. You can use the following code to insert at the caret position.

  new MouseAdapter() {
    public void mouseClicked(mouseEvent me) {
       // this should move the caret
       // now insert text
       textArea.insertText("TEXT TO INSERT"
