i was wondering if its possible to make your own scrolling news ticker, cept you can put whatever you want it. i tried looking for it in google but all i can up with is html programs and all of them are from a direct website. basically how do i make a scrolling ticker using java, even if that means using an applet.

It does mean using an applet of some kind (which most casual web users will avoid). Like most things in JSP, it can be done with java generating JavaScript that updates every once in awhile so if the target is web users, I'd start with javascript.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
