Actually what I need is some input. I was just certified this summer, no background in dev, only networking. Where I work, I haven't been assigned to any Java assignments as of yet AND haven't even gotten to work with a well seasoned java developer. All I need is someone to look at a really basic program I wrote, tell me if what I am doing fits standard java practice, and what I can do to improve my code. I need an idea that what I am doing is at least along the right lines. I wrote a dorky little GUI program just for this reason so someone can look at it. Any volunteers from the bar or sheriffs office? I can email the code. I'd rather not clutter the board with it. Thanx

What we usually recommend is that you put your code on a web server somewhere, and post a link to it, asking people to take a look and let you know what they think. You may get some interetsing and useful replies. Also, consider doing the "Cattle Drive" assignments here. The kind of pickiness you'll suffer while doing that will really be good for you...
