I am working on small project...if it succeed then that will be integrate with big project...
In my project following topics included..which separated in Big moose saloon...
1.Java in General
2. Swing / AWT / SWT / JFace
3. JDBC
4. Object Relational Mapping
5. Threads and Synchronization
So each time when i stuck in problem i need to ask experts...but expert not want to read/see long code...& even very specific...
1 topic expert tells me you have to ask this xyz problem in that section...
As i am not so much expert in java so i confuse to how to ask proper question in proper forum...
Right now i reach till 4th not still using 'Threads and Synchronization'..when it involve..it get more confusing...
is there any common section where we can ask questions with huge code?(the huge code can be help to run program by just copy paste & save proper extension & run)?
huge confusion...time running out...

I think you may be confusing coderanch rules with just common-sense ways to get more/better answers. It is not really a coderanch rule against large code uploads -- it is just frown upon, because it serves no purpose, meaning you will likely get zero responses. Put yourself in your fellow user's shoes, you don't get paid for this, would you help a total stranger if you have to go through a ton of code? Especially since this stranger seems to have not even done debugging to isolate the problem, much less write a SSCCE to demonstrate the problem.

Your fellow users are volunteers here. They don't get paid. They are helping you because they may have some nuggets of knowledge that may be related.... if you need someone to wade through large amounts of code, and it needs to be done within a deadline, it may be better to hire someone.

Thanks Henry Wong,
I am not complaining about way i ask or the way i get answer...
would you help a total stranger if you have to go through a ton of code?

Your point is absolutely right..if its ask to me..my answer no because i confuse in my code why i solve yours...but then how i get answers when i think about other's question...
Yes i read as many questions & their answers from forum & try to use what ever i feel its useful for me...
...meaning you will likely get zero responses.

I never get zero response ..but when i read few questions asked by peoples & get zero response from few days or months...i feel bad..& try to find out answer but due to involvement in my own project(specially confusion) i not try give answers...
I think you may be confusing coderanch rules with just common-sense ways to get more/better answers.

Yes i so much confuse in basics of common-sense rules...
especially SSCCE...
Example if i want to ask question regarding "3 Drag-able Array of jpanels within jpanel" how i can use that SSCCE for that...can anyone give me real example?

Your fellow users are volunteers here. They don't get paid. They are helping you because they may have some nuggets of knowledge that may be related

That's why respect them & try to ask perfect question so get perfect answer...
Again i confuse what i want to ask?
When i ask swing question with jdbc i got answer that i should ask jdbc separately then i ask question in jdbc but few problems slove & new problem creates related with swing...again i got answer in jdbc section that now ask in swing...
I know short & specific questions helps to understand & easy to slove & its answers also easy to understand...
but my question is there any section where i can post completely mix question?

Java in General for core Java or EJB/JEE for JEE. However, questions with a mix of technologies are going to hit the self contained example problem where there is too much code.

Agreed. For "mix" problems, I wouldn't worry too much on where to put it -- just take a rough guess, and put it somewhere. If it is wrong, or if there is a better location, a moderator would move it for it.


The problem is when it gets too complex, meaning it is not isolated (preferably with a SSCCE), it will be highly unlikely that it get any answers.
