  • nothing with spring but.... jtable like excel with jdbc

    Dear members

    after to read
    http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jdbc/

    i need to learn how to work with jdbc and jtable like excel,

    it means each row must be dynamic, columns of the row must be editable and must update the db

    so the question,
    which is the best book to learn this?
    and best links of your preference guys

    thanks in advanced

    I'm not sure what the question was . Any chance you can try to explain that one again?

      yes, sure

      some book or best links about
      working Jtable (advanced features) with jdbc

      think like jsp/ajax in dynamic tables, but instead of web this in swing interface

      regards

        SwingX!

        It's going to be tough for you - Swing is a difficult beast to learn. I was noodling around some time ago with the SwingLabs components, which are far superior in a number of ways than the standard J* components. Look specifically at the JXTable control, and the various ways they use it in the demo (allowing editable cells and whatnot). I would strongly suggest you start with those controls as a baseline than start to go through the pain of customizing JTable. The component set you want is "SwingX" - have a look at the SwingX Demo to see what it offers. The nice part is (if you use it), they plug right into the component palette in Netbeans 6, so you can still use Matisse to draw your UI. Have fun!

          Hello pmularien

          thanks for the reply

          yes i know , a lot of options available

          thanks for the advice

          really, thanks i appreciate

          why all the power of swing about of an ide is for Netbeans?, in the sentide of GUI development of course, because if it exists a plugin for eclipse i dont what is
          same history for j2me world

          i hope that SwingLabs has a nice support, and i hope see good code samples to understand very quickly this wonderful pain world

          regards

          P.D: SwingLabs offer a book?

            Sorry, I didn't really get that. Netbeans has the Matisse Swing UI builder, which is one of the best free Swing UI designers out there. The MyEclipse team has ported it (I believe) to Eclipse.

            There's decent documentation (Javadoc), and SwingLabs is composed of Sun employees.

            As far as books, the recent "Filthy Rich Clients" book by Chet and Romain is supposed to be pretty good, and shows some things off that most people didn't think possible with Swing.

              I have to confess, we I'd used Swing for a while I actually started to like it! GlazedLists was a nice project I used a couple of times, not sure if it will help.

              This cartoon also summed up lots of my early Swing experiences.

                Sorry, I didn't really get that.
                my point was that netbeans came or has a GUI designer for swing applications (drag and drop), that by default eclipse no has
                thats all

                Netbeans has the Matisse Swing UI builder
                i dont known if is the default tool to work with swing or is a plugin, about myeclipse, not tested yet

                i saw the video, only code i see, let me check your option

                i need code sample/book to learn quickly this

                thanks again for your help

                  Thanks, looks like a nice control to have in the toolchest.

                  @dr_pompeii
                  I agree, I don't know why the Eclipse community hasn't caught up and done a GUI designer - my guess is that 90% of the Java community doesn't do enough Swing work to think it's worth the effort

                    I never really liked the GUI designers, JBuilder's kind of worked, IntelliJ's was still experimental when I last played with it. I just preferred to do it manually. The nicest framework I came accross was JIDE, but you do have to pay for it. It was more than worth the cost however, as it saved me hours of coding and looked great!

                      On the project I was working on, commercial editors weren't an option, but JIDE looks great - thanks

                        AFAIK Netbeans' Matisse is supposed to do a very good job. JBuilder's GUI editor has always been crap since Borland dependencies were added even to the most simple Swing GUIs.

                          if you can tell me your best option about tools for swing with your experience of course,
                          free and commercial options
                          i appreciate, same question for you friend pmularien

                          perhaps eclipse hate swing and prefer its own way,
                          SWT world ,
                          really i dont know

                          if i dont bad remember JBuilder is not free, and according by experiences of my friends is a crap


                          Netbeans' Matisse is the default Swing GUI graphical editor that has by default netbeans right?

                          regards

                            That's correct. Keep in mind that Netbeans 6 isn't out of beta yet, so it's still a bit unstable (although getting better).

                              i remember years ago a book dedicated to netbeans, maybe in these days exists some for
                              Netbeans' Matisse dedicated?
