Hello all,
This is a game i made in the BASIC language several years back. Now, I want to code it using jsp and servlet. It works just like the '3 IN A ROW ' app.
Here is the general idea:
At the start of the game, a page containing numbers running from 1 to 9 is displayed on the screen in the form of a cross as shown below.

The game is played by 2 players. Each of them is represented by an image. They are asked where to go on the cross in a successive manner. For instance if Player 1 says he wants to go to number 8 on the cross, its corresponding image is loaded at position 8 of the cross. They are required to fill 3 positions on the cross and from there they can start moving on the cross. The sole objective of each player is to align its 3 images. A player can only move on its immediate position(right or left) and he cannot move onto an occupied position.
I plan to have the following tables:
Player1
position int(1)

Player2
position int(1)

AllowedMoves
moveFrom int(1)
moveTo int(1)

WinCombinations
win varchar(3)

But my first question is:
How do i load an image at a position chosen by a player on the cross?
Kind regards.

The cross can't show well in the post. The vertical line contains
1
2
3
4
5

and the horizontal line is
6 7 3 8 9

and they meet at position 3.

Hope i am understood. Note that these numbers are images. I am able to display the cross with default images but i don't know how to render them dynamic.

If you are using JSP/Servlets, you are presumably rendering in HTML. What format is the 3 in a row? An HTML table?

Hey Jeanne,
I was finally able to do it. You can see how it looks like by going to http://paulngom.s156.eatj.com/
And tell me your suggestions or remarks if any after you had tried it. Note that this link will last 11 days. I wish i could play with the computer. Do you think that is possible to reach in jsp/servlet code?
Kind regards
