I am looking for sample code on how to create a method with the signature
Collection getOptions();
and populate it with Strings that will serve as the value and property for html ptions. (I am finding this tricky since Collection is an interface rather than a class - so I just want some sample code to see how it is done)
Ultimately what I am trying to do is populate an html:select and then the options - I was told that if I have a method with the above signature then the code in the jsp would look like:
<html:select property="someProperty"> (BTW - what does this someProperty have any meaning here>
<html ptions property"options"/>
I want to use this approach rather than some others where I have to use separate beans, because I can use the ActionForm of this jsp to store my data for the list/menu widget.

I am trying to set the priority of a message that is sent to a queue:
My code:
Message message = my_session.createMessage();
System.out.println("set priority to 8 for zero byte");
System.out.println("default priority is: " + message.getJMSPriority());
System.out.println("after set priority is: " + message.getJMSPriority());
is not working in that when you look at the queue (IBM MQ series BTW) the message has a priority of 4. Even though my last call to message.getJMSPriority()); in the above code returns an 8.
I can successfully set the priority on the Queue object but I need to set it at the message level?
Many Thanks
I was told you can get the java process id (OS thing) from within the java program - someone told me I could get it from some method in the Thread arena but I can't find it.
Many Thanks
try setting the preferredSize of the JLabel
JLabel myLabel = new JLabel("Some Text");
myLabel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(100,50));
//then add to the layout manager
I don't know what you are doing but you might want to embed your label in a JPanel to make it look better and then add the JPanel to the borderLayout - again, just make sure you set the preferred Sizes of the components or they won't show up.

Thanks for the replies.
Could you be more specific? What class is this from:
You can get the "OUTBOUND" element with Document#getDocumentElement(). Then you can access "NAME", "FILENAME", "ID", and "SUM" with Node#getChildNodes(). The value of each element can be obtained using Node#getNodeValue().
Any code samples?
Also, from the examples I have seen is there anyway I can use the dom or sax parsers or something else without having an actual xmlFile - my program has an xml string that I am reading off a queue, that I need to parse.
Many Thanks!
Hopefully this is a really easy question for someone - I am looking for the easiest way to extract the values out of this xml string: I am limited to using Java 1.3. The tag names will always be the same. Is there an existing Java class/api, which will do this - or do I have to just string parse this thing.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<NAME>Joe Blow</NAME>
To be clear I need to extract, Joe Blow, c:\\tmp\\SampleFile.txt, etc. from this string.
Many Thanks!
I want to be able to read a file, from the file system line by, basically delimited by \n (new line character).
Then I need to get the size of that line in bytes. And then I will do some processing with that line, which is basically appending it to a buffer with some massaging.
What I don't want to do is read the whole file into a String Buffer at one time and then do my parsing with the StringBuffer - the issue is my file could be extremely large and I am supposed to break my processing into chucks when I hit a certain size.
So, in summary, how do I read a file line by line and then get the size in bytes of that line. I am assuming I will use FileReader but I can only find examples that read it in char by char.
Many Thanks

This might be an easy problem for someone but I can't see to get it down:
What I have is a vector which contains objects that are a bean class I created.
What I need to do is go thru this vector in reverse order - and remove from the bottom up the beans from the vector until I hit a bean which contains an int that is equal to another int that my program knows about. Then I have to remove that bean - but then I want to stop - I don't want to remove any beans above that in the vector. Of course, my bean has some method like getMyInt() that I will use.
Does anyone follow this? I don't think it is hard - I am just stuck on it.
Many Thanks!

Thanks very much for the responses:
To clarify - regarding the size:
Well what I am really after is the bytes - preferably I would like some api which would return bytes - but if that does not exist I guess I could convert the chars to bytes and thus compute my size in btyes - does anyone know what that algorithm is - to convert chars to bytes - is it something like a char = 2 bytes, or a char = 4 bytes?

And to clariy where to break the xml:
I have a specified tag that I have to break on. If I go over the max size a bit till I come to the specified tag that is okay.
Many Thanks!!

I can't get the following code to work when I am trying to access a queue remotly - the queue is on a Unix server and my java program, which contains this snipet, is sitting on a Windows client - I am new to JMS so it could be something obvious. But, this code works fine when I accessing a local queue on my windows client. I am using IBM MQSeries.
public String put() {
try {
QueueConnectionFactory factory = null;
factory = new MQQueueConnectionFactory();
((MQQueueConnectionFactory) factory).setHostName(my_hostname);
((MQQueueConnectionFactory) factory).setPort(my_port);
((MQQueueConnectionFactory) factory).setChannel(my_channel);
//don't think I need this setTargetClient do I?
//(( queue).setTargetClient(

((MQQueueConnectionFactory) factory).setQueueManager(my_queueManagerName);
System.out.println("break 1!");

javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS2005: failed to create MQQueueManager for 'my_queue_manager_name' MQJE001: Completion Code 2, Reason 2058

my_connection = factory.createQueueConnection();
System.out.println("break 2!");
my_session = my_connection.createQueueSession(
System.out.println("break 3");
my_queue = (Queue) my_session.createQueue(my_queueName);
my_queueSender = my_session.createSender(my_queue);
etc. etc.

} //end put

-Many Thanks-
Wow, that is perfect - I didn't even check that - as I recall using the last version of JBuilder personal and I couldn't find that fuctionality on that version so I assumed it was the same.

I am using JBuilder9 personal - it by default uses java 1.4 - but I would like to use 1.3(due to constrainsts in other areas) - I don't know if there is an easy way to change it within the IDE itself - since this is only the personal version - but maybe I could change some ini file to point to a 1.3 directory or something along those lines - or I would be happy to use an older JBuilder personal version that uses 1.3 by default, but I couldn't find where I could download a version like that any longer.
Many Thanks!

This is really helpful but not all the way there - now I need to figure out what is proprietary to IBM MQSeries - from my research I believe I need to pass a properties object when I create the initial context - something like:
Properties env = new Properties();
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "?");
InitialContext jndi = new InitialContext(env);
When I add this, which seems to be critical or I get(javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial) to the sample in the above link I get this error:
Could not create JNDI API context: javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Cannot instantiate class: [Root exception is java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:]
So, what are the property values I need for IBM MQ - or what am I missing?
Thanks a lot!!!

Does anyone have any sample code on how to put a text file or just straight text onto an IBM MQSeries queue with JMS?
Many Thanks
