Hello,
Am trying to figure out if am in the right forum.
Does this forum answer questions about sending data from one computer to another over the internet?
Does it handle commnication of computers over the internet using GUI's in Java?
Let me know. I don't want to post up questions that are not relate dto the forum.
Thanks.
yours respectuflly Avin Sinanan

This forum concentrates on servlets - the Java technology designed mainly for dynamically creating web pages. The only GUIs involved are in the form of HTML pages.
Yes you can use servlets to send data between computers but there are other technologies, such as SOAP, RMI, etc that can also be used.

Here's a breakdown that may help. This is the Servlets forum, and the questions you'd ask here are questions about how to program and use Java Servlets. The JSP forum is similar, but relates to Java Server Pages.
General Java GUI questions should be asked in the Swing/JFC/AWT forum, and questions about Java Applets and how they communicate with Servlets or JSP's (or non-Java servers like CGI) are best asked in the Applets forum.
We're not the type to "flame" you if you make the wrong choice - though if it's truly out of place, the bartender may move your question to a more appropriate forum. More important is that we ask that you not cross-post, since that clutters the forums up and doesn't benefit you either.
Thanks for asking, though - it shows intelligence and consideration.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
