Ok, I should probably be running a bait shop instead of coding, but here goes... I am writing an applet to show data from a database. This is just an test, the end result will actually have xml flying around with html/jsp front ends and ejb's on the back side. Right now, I want it to show up on a page in an applet.
Well, actually, I want ANYTHING to show up in an applet.
I'm trying to use swing components (JFrame, etc) and I can't get past this point. Even when I use the hardcoded values, they don't work.
HELP!!!

A couple of things, Sam:
  • You have a main class with an inner class. Your main class doesn't do anything except define the innerclass - the inner class is never instantiated. So, add code to the main class that instantiates and uses the innerclass.
  • When you do that and run the applet, you'll discover that you have some other flaws.
  • Here's your code with a few changes to begin to do what you may have been trying (note that the code still doesn't make complete sense):
    Good Luck.

    A couple of trails and lesssons from Sun's Java Tutorial that you might want to peruse:
  • Writing Applets
  • Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing
  • Converting to Swing
  • Good Luck.

    Ok, so what does this mean? (where can I find the information to look this up?) I could probably figure this out if I just knew where to find this information (error messages).
    Thanks.

    p.s. I'm not always this dense, just have a lot of procedural coding background to push out of the way....

    Helps when you don't delete the extends JApplet call.
