Doh! So simple.

Does anyone know how to implement a panel that slides out from the side of a frame when you click a button or something. I want something similar to how IntelliJ's IDEA does it (for those that know IDEA).

I think an applet talking to a session facade bean which then interacts with entity beans is an acceptable approach. So long as firewalls are not a concern. You may have to change the policy file on the client to make this work, however.
So, it probably makes sense if you are deploying on an intranet. But, if firewalls are a concern then use either servlets or even webservices in between the applet and EJBs. I am considering the webservice approach for a future project.

Does anyone know where I can find an example of this architecture, with source?
I would like to know more about how the Applet communicates with the Servlet in terms HTTP tunneling. How does the applet make remote calls on the object?
Thanks,

Hey guys,
My company is building a system where the front end client is an applet running in browser which then needs to display and manipulate data from a database on the server, preferably through a Servlet or RMI on the middle tier. Does JBuilder or any of the other big IDEs provide any wizards or automatic data-binding features that would bind the GUI components in the applet to the tables/columns in the database (automatically generating the Servlet or RMI code that relays the JDBC calls)?
Or something similar to this?

Thanks,

Thanks for all the help Faisal!
Currently, I am living in the Toronto area (originally from North Bay, ON). Through some networking (small town, everyone knows everyone else!)I managed to get my resume at the top of the pile at software company in North Bay, but unfortunately they just aren't hiring right now. Hopefully that will change soon.
I will definitely check out the oil and gas companies as I was trained in databases using Oracle. In fact, in one of my classes, we developed an entire system using an Oracle back-end and Oracle Forms & Reports for the front end.
My personal interests are mostly in Java, specifically J2EE stuff like servlets, JSP, EJBs. I would like to play with EJBs more but I don't have anywhere to host and run them. Right now I am working on a complete online system for a soccer league(they took pitty on me and wanted to give me some experience to help me find a real job!). Anyways, it should be fun as they would like it to integrate with the province-wide team & player database which uses Lotus Notes.
Other than Java, I know VB, some basic C++, MySQL, Oracle, DB2, javascript, some UML, etc.
I am also in the process of learning more about EJBs, and XML.
I'll browse the CJUG and EJUG sites some more...already found a job posting on EJUG for a junior Java Developer. It was posted by a new startup that is a spinoff of Bioware.
Anyways, thanks again for the help. I wish I could make it to Calgary right now, seeing as though the stampede is on. I have a couple of close friends who live in Calgary and they are ALWAYS raving about how much better Calgary is than Toronto and that I should move out there. We'll see what happens!
Thanks!

Hey Faisal,
It sounds like you landed a sweet java job! I read your advice about cold calling and I think I might have to try it more often.
Anyways, I was wondering if you knew of any companies in the Calgary area that use Java-based technologies? I am looking for a job, pretty much anywhere in Canada, but Calgary is definitely high on my list.
I have an Hon.BSc and I recently graduated with a post-graduate diploma in computer programming. Not having any real-world experience, I am finding it difficult to find employment.
I would appreciate any help or advice!
Thanks,
Steve

There are quite a few Java jobs available in the Toronto Area, but it's the same old story...you have to have at least 1 or 2 years experience before they will even look at you. I am fresh out of school with no "professional" experience, so I am finding it difficult.
Good luck!

Is there such a place? Most places that offer EJBs are in the > $100/month range.
Thanks!
...WebAppCabaret.com???
Just wondering if it is possible.
Thanks!
