I am attempting to rework the code from java head first using some of the things taught in a beginner/intermediate online self paced training course.
it compiles (eclipse)
and the console displays the results but the GUI actually does not,
I want the user to enter a number and then the "beersong' to start counting down from that number (hope this makes sense)
well, Im not entirely sure, but i think the problem is that your using System.out.println() to display your text, which only works in the terminal. I using JTextArea.append(String) to display things in gui.
