Eclipse 3.4 TextViewer

I am creating a plugin for Eclipse 3.4. I created a plug-in development project using the application with a view. Now I am trying to create a TextViewer the documentation says that it is located in org.eclipse.jface.text.TextViewer. But, this whole package is missing and eclipse cannot locate TextViewer class to import. I want to know why is this package/class missing? Also if it is really gone what took TextViewer's place?

If you don't like the manual route, have a look at the Automated Management of Dependencies feature in the manifest editor, though care should be taken with this.
