HI Everybody,
I am working on a project which is basically a client side application (applet using cardlayout). See i have few textfields in which the user can put in his data and at the end of the last step he has the option to SAVE, PRINT & ORDER.
When he says SAVE then it should print on the client side in file format (txt)... and the same goes for PRINT too..
When he says ORDER it should ask the user to go online if he notis online.. and when he is online it should store the data in the database (MySQL).
Hey let me tell u i doono anything about how to go about it.........i mean how to go ahead about it..
Can anybody please help me out in this...
Can i know is there a similar example..............where in i can get the case-study and get the clear picture..
Help me out please guys...

There was a reply to your query that disappeared when the site crashed this week. Sorry about that, but here is the gist of what was posted:
You could store the user's form input in an array until they click the save button. Then when they click it, you would have to step through the array and build the contents into some kind of delimited string ( you could use ; or : or even | ). Then you would have to make the server-side of your application parse the string to make use of it. Is this what you had in mind?

A code example would be more than I can do for you this morning, but let me try to give you a short description of what I am talking about.
Let's say you have a form with the following fields on it: Name, Address, Phone number. Your form also has two buttons: Save changes, and Add New Entry. The user can click Add New Entry and put in a new Name, Address, and Phone Number as many times as they like. You can create a new class called Contact, for example. Each time they click Add New Entry, their previous entries are stored in a new contact object, which in turn is stored in a vector. When they finally finish making entries they click the Save Changes button. Now their final entry is stored as a Contact object in the vector. Now you can step through the vector and generate a SQL Statement to insert the rows into the database all at once.
Sorry if my earlier post was confusing. I forgot that you said you were using an Applet to do this. I was responding as though you were using JSP or a Servelet to handle the processing and database interaction.

The following code examples is NOT a total solution to your problem. But, will shoud you how to implement an applet using the Layout manager(s) interacting with a database via jdbc 1.0.
This example does NOT ues threads... It should to be more efficient...
FYI... do no forget to use the politytool utility to grant permissions...
