I need to create a gui and allow the user to rearrange some of the components on the screen. Has anyone seen a write-up on anything like this?

Thanks,

BTW - One thing I did do, strictly for my own benefit, was to prepare a simple project file (MrProject) and it has really helped me to keep everything organized.
Simplicity rules. No URL diagrams. Of course no ER Diagrams (must have been on a coffee high).
Thanks,
Ray
Did many of you bother to do ER Diagrams?
What about UML Diagrams?
Thanks,
Ray
I've never used Ximian Evolution but I hear it's a good replacement for MS Outlook. Unfurnately, the biggest thing that keeps me from using Linux more regularly is that I'm a heavy ACT! user and I don't believe there's a replacement yet for it on Linux.
If someone else doesn't address this issue soon I may try my hand at it.

I've been using OpenOffice.org for some time now and it works great. However, even though most things are in the same place as MS Office there is a small learning curve. If I were in a demanding environment I would identify the more involved MS Office features I use and focus on finding how to access them in OpenOffice.org.
A minor thing but the biggest annoyance I found was having to modify a file to increase the size of the MRU (most recently used files) list.

No change. This is unfortunately what I expected since the message said it couldn't find the file.

When I try to run jEdit (v4.0final) I get the message:
AntFarm cannot locate tools.jar
The tools.jar archive cannot be located by AntFarm. This will cause problems when trying to use the moden and classic compilers in build scripts. If you want AntFarm to work properly, please configure jEdit to run with Java Development Kit (JDK), not the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
Once jEdit starts I get a message concerning problems with the two plugins: JCompiler.jar and JSwatPlugin.jar.
I'm using Ant v1.5Beta2, Win2K and my environment variables are set as follows:
ANT_HOME = c:\ant
JAVA_HOME = c:\j2sdk1.4.0
PATH = c:\j2sdk1.4.0\bin;c:\ant\bin
CLASSPATH = .;c:\ant\lib
I can find tools.jar is in two locations: c:\j2sdk1.4.0\lib and
c:\Programs Files\Java\j2re1.4.0.
I've heard a lot of good things about these tools and I'm trying to learn to use them.
TIA,

I've started my assignment and it seems that laying out the tasks with a Microsoft Project type tool would really be helpful. Is anyone aware of an open source/free tool for this? (preferably Windows & Linux).
TIA,
Ray
I had a similar question and was quite disappointed to find that you can't buy it online. You have to call Sun and purchase it. The phone is listed in the FAQ.

To throw my two cents in, I think it's better to at least start out using something closer to a text editor. It forces you to understand what's going on.
When I started learning Java it was with Visual J++ and the IDE generated so much code that I really had almost no idea what was going on. As a result I also had no control and I was very dissatisfied.

I just went online to pay for my assignment and all I could find was a phone number (and of course they're closed on Saturday). Does this mean there's no way to buy your assignment online?
Ray
Thanks a lot. I'm trying to learn all this from tutorials and books and it's a little slow going.

I'm just getting started with RMI also. I tried starting out with Mastering RMI by Rickard Oberg but had to stop and go through Sun's RMI Tutorial first. I was then able to come back to the book. I still have to make a few detours from time to time in areas where I'm weak but it's much better now.

If I'm reading correctly RMI requires the server (and also client?) to have a web server. Does this mean that I have to load a webserver to run RMI or is this normally part of the OS? (Windows 2K and Linux).
