On a more general note, it is a very bad practice to just swallow exceptions in this manner. Never ever do it or debugging the sort of errors you are seeing will be a serious headache. A System.out.println should be used at the very least, but preferably a e.printStackTrace() in the absence of a more complete logging framework.

Without knowing the exact framework your application is using I can only offer a fairly generic suggestion. It sounds like you need to make sure all of the data is persisted by either using the session, or is sent backwards and forwards in the request/response each time. You may well be trying to do this, but you may want to check the scope of whatever it is that you are using to store the variables. They may well be getting reset/overwritten between each and every response, especially if you are creating new bean instances whenever a page loads.

A bit generalised, I know, but I hope it helps somewhat.

Class.newInstance() should do the same thing.

"D:\SCJP\CoreJava\com\mypackagaes\stuff\Employee.java"

I assume the typo in "mypackagaes" is an error in the post and not in your actual package structure? I would assume it is the post because you said a fully qualified import works, but I have to point this out anyway.

Is there a reason why you can't do a fully qualified import and not use the wildcard? Are you simply curious as to why it doesnt work using *?

Also, does moving PackageTest to its own package fix the issue? It is usually considered fairly bad practice to use the default package as a dumping ground.

Alas I still cannot see why it doesn't work as you want it yet, I will keep thinking on it.

That sounds like a winner to me. Or a FileInputStream to be precise.

I believe this question has been answered in-depth countless times on these forums. If you search for "Java" and "object oriented" I am sure you will find answers far more detailed than I can provide.

If you mark the class implementing the interface as abstract, you only need to provide either partial, or default implementations of the method stubs defined in the interface. This type of class is typically called an Adapter. The remaining methods will then need to be implemented fully in a concrete subclass that inherits from this Adapter.

Be aware however, that by marking a class as abstract, you cannot instantiate it. You will have to instantiate a concrete subclass that has implementations of all of the methods defined by the interface.

By saying House b2=b1, you have defined a second reference to the object that b1 is also pointing to at that point in time. b2 does not point to the reference defined in b1. By making b1's reference null, you are only breaking the reference to the object. You are not destroying the object itself. The object will still exist on the heap because b2's reference to it is maintained.

At least I think that is how it works.

Changing the Exception type wont alter a thing - there is still a fundamental reason why your attempt to create an instance of ServerSocket is failing. in your catch block, try the following, and post the results it displays here for us to take a look at:

It is like comparing apples and oranges. Aggregation is usually described in the text books as "has a". Inheritance is usually described as "is a".

An example of this is Class Car "is a" Vehicle. Thus Car would inherit from Vehicle. However Class Car "has a" Engine. Thus Engine is an aggregate of Car. You can never say an Engine "is a" Car, or vice versa.

Hope this helps.

If you are going for your Sun Certified Java Programmers exam, forget about J2EE. Those are the enterprise APIs built off of the back of the base Java programming language. The SCJP exam covers strictly Java language fundamentals. The later certification exams go into the details of J2EE in more depth. Get one of the good Programmer Certification Guides, advertised here on the Ranch and you shouldn't have any problems after a bit of time and effort invested in studying the material and practicing the exam using a few mock tests.

Do you see something wrong with your main(String[] args) method? look at how you have defined it, and then check one of your reference books on how to define a main method. You are missing a very important word in there.

And will that "throws IOException" cause trouble too? Not sure about that one off the top of my head.

This JDBC tutorial and this Java CSV file manipulation tutorial would be a good place to start.

There are dozens of examples just like this all over the web. The above are two hits I got right off the bat via Google.

In a nutshell, use JDBC to connect to your database and obtain a ResultSet. Iterate over your ResultSet and use either JDBC again, or a straight file output using the Java IO API to generate your CSV file.

Also, I think your name is against the Java Ranch naming policy. You may want to update it before one of the moderators notice. EDIT: Too late.
