This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Suggestion on best practices? I'll give the "I'm new disclaimer."
I have a javaapplet that pops up from a web page, does some web scrapping through htmlunit. After the applet is done, I need the applet pop-up window to close and the original page to refresh.
As of now I'm using showStatus() to know when the applet is finishing and manually doing the above.
I'm using onclick for the pop-up window initially to open.
