		Object aobj=caretEvent.getSource();
		Component comp=aobj.

You can compare aobj with the possible JComponents that it could be, eg

if (aobj == myJTextField1) ...
else (aobj == myJTextField2) ...

When you know what the source is, you can cast aobj to the appropriate class, eg

if (aobj == myJTextField1) JTextField …

if (aobj == myJTextField1) JTextField tf = (JTextField) aobj

or maybe all the possible sources are JTextFields anyway so you can start with

JTextField source = (JTextField) caretEvent.getSource();

Finally, depending on how many components share this listener, and how similar or dissimilar their processing is, it may be best to have a different listener for each component so you don't need to check what the source was.
