Hi! I hope I'm in the right section of the forum, excuse me if I'm not.
In my java program I have to send a file to a ftp server. During the transfer I would like to show in a JTextField(called tLoading) the FTP log( for example: connecting to the server, transfer file, closing connection). I have a class with a JPanel and the JTextField inside the panel. From this class I call the static method upload of another class called FileUpload. This is the method:

The problem is that the JTextField tLoading donesn't change its value. I thought it was a thread problem, so I've created the following class:

and in the upload method I've replaced the tLoading.setText(...) instrucions with

The result is that the message msg is written in the right moment on the stdout but the JTextField value changes only at the end of the upload method. Any suggestions??

JTextField changes should be made on the EDT (Event dispatch thread), upload takes time so should not , assuming your load is not on the EDT your upload should spin off a job onto the EDT to update the text field.
