Hello,

in my swing application I have a Reference panel in my menu bar that allow the user to check some checkBoxes and some radio box based on his need.
However, those check boxes and radio boxes are reset to their default when I restart the application.

What should I do to have the state of the check boxes remain the same when the application exits and restart?

Thanks

You'll have to store them when the application closes and reload them when it starts again. You can use a Properties object backed by a file for that, or perhaps java.util.prefs.Preferences.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
