    Default How to make a simple and efficient web control panel.

    Hi there,

    I am currently working on a small side project for fun but i seem to have hit a bump and not sure what the best way to proceed is.

    The project i am creating is a roller coaster simulator.

    So far i have created it using eclipse and it runs on my local machine...
    I start up the simulator, and enter in what settings i want (ie. number of cars, length of track etc..) and then it displays some graphics and data.

    but what i want to do now, though, is set it up so i can access it through a browser.

    This way, as long as it it running on the local host machine, i should be able to connect to it through a browser, change settings if i want, and control it.

    I am not sure what a clean way of designing this, anyone have any suggestions?

    I have been reading about java RIM library, any comments on this?


    Thanks for the help - i do appreciate it!

    Kelsey S.

    Is an applet appropriate for your requirements?

    A java applet would be appropriate and i have looked in to making one of these.
    Sorry i forgot to mention.

    Are applets difficult to create? I would say my java skills are alright, but no where near expert.

    I suggest you read through the tutorials I linked to above and assess this for yourself, as you know your current skill set better than any of us. You will most likely need to learn how to create a Swing user interface to display to the user. In my opinion much of this is straightforward, just can seem overwhelming at first if one bites off a lot at once.
