There is something I am not understanding with this, so here goes.

First I am going to post the code which is in 3 classes. Then i'll ask the question at the bottom.



then the SwingWorker.

Ok What I am trying to do is run a shell script and have the output of the script show up in realtime in the JTextArea. What I am not sure about is where my code should go that is performing that task. Here is that code.

The first 3 files are not completely my writings, I found code similar to what I am trying to do and changed it to how I wanted it. So what i need to figure out is when the run button is pushed i want this code above to run and the progress bar to tell the progress of it. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Sorry for the long post.

i hope that helps.
