i have a problem in JList... Normally i just set the number items to be dispalyed in the Jlist in arrays,
String methods[] = {"setData", "getId", "getName", "getSalary", "getAge", "toString"};
JList listmeth= new JList(methods);

what if i am not intializing the methods and just applying a call method to do that..
When i click a button i would be able to tokenize words from a file...
i would need to take certain words from the tokenized words and add it into a Jlist... Please help me...I have until the part of tokenizing the words and adding the words i needed to display inside an array.. but do no how to add it into a Jlist..

use a DefaultListModel, and it's addElement() method

DefaultListModel listModel = new DefaultListModel();
JList list = new JList(listModel);
for(iterate the array)

then later you just add whatever you want to the listModel
I agree. Here's the link:
