CAn any good programmer help me on this topic? i try half way.. but can't do it. pls.. help me.. important!!! ok!!! thanks!! 1) Keypad for Entry System Write a program that will output a keypad which consists of numeric buttons for entering pin numbers for an entry system and a display panel. (You do not have to program entire entry system, just the keypad part). Your keypad should also be visible on another computer that is connected in a simple network. When pin numbers are entered, the keypad on this computer will display the numbers that were entered. The operator from this computer will then check whether the numbers are valid and send an appropriate code. Based on the code, the first computer will display certain message and play certain sound. The codes are as below: 1 � Valid. Display �VALID-YOU MAY ENTER� on the display panel and play a sound. 2 � Not valid. Display �INVALID CODE � PLEASE REENTER NUMBERS� and play another sound. A sample keypad should look like the one below. You do not have to follow exactly like the one below. Be creative!!.
Well, this is a pretty crazy homework assignment. The "output a keypad" part is ambiguous; do they mean "show a keypad GUI window" or do they mean "print a picture of a keypad to standard output"? The "network" part implies communication between multiple programs, not just one program; but the instructions don't make this clear at all. I imagine the right approach to take depends a lot on what you've been learning in this course. You could do this with servlets and HTML, if this was a web-based programming course; or you could do it with Swing and RMI, if these things were taught; or you could use raw sockets and System.out.println(). It all depends on the instructor's expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to go to the TA or instructor and ask for some serious clarification.
Hi. ACtually it wants something like this. Two pc program connected in the network. But when the first pc program type the keywords. The second pc will come out with the "name" or something like "biodata" if it's valid.. it will play certain sounds. and if it's not.. it will play certain sounds also. i have the first program with me now. do u want to see it? ACtually.. i haven't learned that far in java.... what u asked me in this forum regarding about the swing.i know nothings. pls do help me with this problem first. i have pasted the code as well, THanks!!!

First of all, you're going to drive yourself crazy writing code this way! Put all those buttons into an array; then code like
Can be reduced to:
If you did this everywhere, you'd cut the size of this code in half, and save yourself a lot of aggravation! Now, if you want to make this communicate with another, similar program on another computer, you have at least two choices: you can use raw sockets, or you can use RMI. If you don't know anything about either, I'd recommend you use RMI, and start by reading Sun's tutorial on the topic.
Hi,Mr Ernest Would u mind to help me out with this program? i just need a good programmer to finish this up. frankly,i'm just a beginner in java..... this is the program that have to be done, even the lecturer didn't cover up much of the topic. that's sucks....... it's my fren program... i was shocked when i see it? pls.. help........

Hi Mitchell - I understand you're in a bind to get this assignment done. However, as a teacher and writer myself, I'm only interested in helping you learn something. The work you'll have to do yourself. Please understand that I am confining my comments to helping you do your work. Getting the assignment done is yours and yours alone to worry about. Start by reading the RMI tutorial!
Hi,Mr Ernest. I understand what u meant?But now i'm really need your help only. just for this time.I do really understand that i have to do it by myself but this isn't my assigment. I will promise that i will learn java in here always. plsss..... i will read the RMI tutorial next time. plsss........
