Well, I've got the data part down. That's pretty straightforward. A project I am doing now feautres semi-public data ( which is retrieved via the server from a database, but the user is required to create an account ), but at the same time protects encrypted passwords and things. Though the databae is protected via a username and password ( and host access control ), so I shouldn't be too concerned there.
What about things like floods? How could I protect against them?

This isn't exactly a Java-specific question, but I was wondering about the security of servers. Say I have a server -- just a plain server that sends back to the client what it recieves ( a dummy server, so to speak, for example purposes ). What measurements would I take to make it more secure? What are the most common measures implemented? What are the most important measures implemented? I have been wondering about this for a while, but have never really found an(y) answer(s).
Thanks,
Peyton

Bleh. I find Jython very interesting and very easy for beginners. Plus, you can use Python in other places too.

Depends, what are you learning it for?
Java-related purposes? Then go with Jython.

If you want to turn it into a '.exe' file, there are a number of utilities out there. Just do a search.
There was one really good EXE wrapper for JAR files on sourceforge, but I can't remember the name and just whiped Windows yesterday for Mandrake.

There are other uses for it besides embedding.

Only include the relevant code and things will be easier to debug ( you can replace irrelevant chunks of code with '...' ). Anyhow, created a model for the list and use addRow().

Scroll down to the methods and find setVerticalScrollBarPolicy and setHorizontalScrollBarPolicy.

Hello!
Is there a way I can see the number of active connections to a server socket?
Are you aware that 'newVector.elementAt(2)' will return a vector conisting of more vectors? It will return all of row two. If you wanted to get, say, row two's column one, you'd use:

I overcame my stubborness to try it without seeing if my thoughts were correct - and it worked!
For those of you searching through the threads in this forum a year or two from now - ListCellRenderers still work with manual additition of list items.
Heh, I should have tried it before posting, but I didn't want to write anything I didn't have to. Sorry.

I'm puzzled right now as to what to do, maybe some of you Java dieties can help me.
Basically, I have an auction system ( application, not applet ) for a popular game. Players can auction items. Right now, you can pick a category and it displays all the auctions from the category. It does this by sending the server a message. The server then queries the MySQL database and sends back a list of auctions. They are all added to the jList.
What I want to do is improve on the listing of auctions to create icons for each list item signifying different things, such as a locked auction. I can get the info on the server-side, no problem, but actually listing them is what puzzles me.
Now, I could use a ListCellRenderer, but I before I start I want to be sure of exactly how I want to tackle it. I'm a bit confused as to how to make the renderer. In the example I have seen, it adds a row for each item in an array. It looks all fine and dandy, but does that kill the purpose of adding rows manually? Furthermore, would it repaint itself every time I got a new list from the server?
Any replies are appreciated.
