I am a newbie to Swing and Java World. I wanted to create a small swing application(as part of my project requirement) which will pull some details from the Oracle DB and display it to the user. The window just freezes on DriverManager.getConnection call and then nothing happens for a long time,until i terminate the application. The program is running fine as a stand alone Java program. But it is failing when the same is implemented in Swing. I have pasted the relevant codes. I gogled around and found several threads but could not find a solution. I am using
Java version "1.6.0_16"
Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.4.0 - 64bi(the server is located on a remote Unix box).
Please let me know if any other information is needed.
Hi Ebi, welcome to CodeRanch! Please UseCodeTags. I added them for you this time.

Here's the problem. First learn Swing before you learn how to make a Swing program in an IDE. Writing a Swing application is incredibly hard to get right if your IDE adds all sorts of code and you don't know what it does.
Have you read Oracle's Swing tutorial yet?
The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
The Swing Application Framework (org.jdesktop... classes) isn't part of Swing. Learn to use the core Java classes first. The SAF (JSR-296) may be useful for large Swing applications, but it has its own learning curve.
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
