Progress / Status update.

First, Thanks for all your help.

I am using net beans gui builder,
Have a JFrame on which I placed two JTrees on left and right side and place a button in the middle. When I click middle button, I copy files from left tree to right tree. This copy logic is implemented in a separate class which I invoke when button is clicked.

So far so good. Now I would like
- to show some kind of status/progress update when the transfer is going on, actually transfer class spits out to System.out.println().
- When transfer is finished, capture that event 'transfer is finished' and show a dialog on which a button is available for user to click which would close the application or reset so that another transfer could start.

I need help in how to implement this not the actual code.

I think that this tutorial will answer all your questions.

Thanks Wouter. Please let me know if you come across some other tutorials because Sun's tutorials are sometimes complicated for my 'slow to understand' brain.
I agree. Here's the link:
