*This has already been posted on the Sun Java Forum, but I need help quickly, so I am cross-posting. Thank you!*

Basically, I have all of the data download from the FTP site but I can't get it to be reprinted to the GUI after the GUI is already opened initially. I'm pretty sure I have to make a new method at the very bottom of the GUIWindow.java class but I don't know what goes there. If anyone needs to look at the other classes, let me know. By the way, I'm handing this in for my final project in Computer Science tomorrow, so I need help quick! Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Scroll down for code...

Cross-posted on the Sun Java Forum. To the OP, please have a look here: Be Forthright When Cross Posting To Other Sites

This is also general policy at the Sun fora and just good net etiquette.

Good luck!

Sorry, I didn't realize that...I will edit the first post to reflect that. Thank you!

The mods will also send you a private message about your screen name, but you can beat them to their game by reading the other FAQs here.

A question I have for you is this: have you sprinkled your code with println statements to see what the state of variables are in various locations? Either that or have you run it with a debugger? This can solve your whole problem, or at the very least show you exactly where your error is located.

For instance,

Ok, I narrowed down what I could, without taking too much out. My problem really only involves these two classes...I'm pretty sure it's a simple problem (since it's something I have missing, not something I need to fix) but I honestly don't know what to do. And I've only put a few println statements in there, but like I said, it's just something that needs to be added. By the way, to see if you did fix it, type in 'KLGA' (without the quotes of course) into the blank box before you hit convert. Thanks for any help!

DownloadMETAR.java:


GUIWindow.java:


CreateMETAR.java:


DecodeMETAR.java:


Edit: I just realized that the CreateMETAR.java class and DecodeMETAR.java class are both necessary to compile...I will post them, but you don't need to look in either class since I know for a fact that the problem isn't cause be either class.

Please see the changes made to my post above. Also, your code does not compile. Non-compiling code without comments is extremely hard if not impossible to debug. You really should consider creating an SSCCE as recommended in your cross-post.
