Hi! i'm new here as you can see, i joined this website because i need help in my end of year project. Ok am a begginner in java, and when i say begginner i mean i'm really very green in java. I have this project where i am simulating token ring and i have no idea where to start or what to do please help. I need to know how to link events to a set of instructions like one button can be pressed like 10 times and i want every time it is pressed it draws the same item at a different place. Or a circulating token which i have no idea how to even start on that one so please guys help.

To resist is to piss in the wind, if you try you'll end up smelling!!

you should try the beginners forum because this is about Object Relational Mapping stuff.

hava a look at JPanel (especially the paint(Graphics g) method) , JButton, ActionListener, ActionEvent.

You are right Pascal.

nadeenaaaa Bismarckaaa this is a forum for ORM tools like Hibernate, and your question isn't at all about an ORM, so I am going to move this thread to the Java In General (Beginner) forum.

Welcome to the JavaRanch! Please adjust your displayed name to meet the

JavaRanch Naming Policy.

While I believe that it is probably really close to your actual name spelling, however I doubt that you have three "a" in both your first and last names.

You can change it


Thanks! and welcome to the JavaRanch!
