    Question I want to build something...

    Hey, I'm new to these forums and to Java as well. I'm planning on sticking with Java code for a while until I can code fluently in it.

    I have a website at Wacos.ca. I wanted a login system that I could use for my administrators to manage, as well as new users. I don't really have anything for users to interact at the moment with my site, but I know what I want. I can do the majority of the code, I just need some help with the following things:

    - Created, or editing the JButton object so that the images (hover, click, default) comply to the image files I have.

    - have a file I/O for users, for different purposes. (I've already tried this, but the JLabel object will not work in some of the code I've made)

    - Have String and Integer values sent through to Java server software, ran externally from the system that the client applet is running from.

    I simply need to do those three things. I already know a lot of Java syntax, I can easily code up a nice GUI, I'm just missing those things. Any help is appreciated!

    Sorry If I seem a little demanding, I've been trying to get I/O to work for a while, so this stuff is starting to piss me off.

    Are you saying that your UI is going to be done through an applet?

    If so, I'd recommend using JSP's (Java server pages) - or even better, JSFs (Java Server Faces) instead, as I find it to be a lot more controlled when applying an MVC architecture.
    Stuff like the JButton aim can be done a lot better and much easier using web technologies and CSS.

    Yes, but I plan on using Java for future application I plan to create. If my entire login client and server software is also written in Java, it makes everything easier to add to.

    Again, I'm just a beginner. I don't know what MVC architecture is, and I didn't actually code my own website. It was a template that I modified with my minimal knowledge of HTML. I do however have experience running servers.
