    Default The proper SwingGui best fit to display a large information set

    Hi guys,


    Please,

    I have a simple display method in a java project as given below:

    public void displayInfo() {
    for(Student student : studentdB){
    System.out.println(student.toString() + "\n");

    }

    I would want to use one of Swing components to display the students instead of displaying them on the stdout. Anyone knows how I could go about calling this method in some Swing components that can display all the students in the studentdb?

    Thanks

    This is a very vague question. But I guess you could just append the text, that you would print to the console, to a JTextArea or similar component.

    How about if that text is changing dynamically? Then appending is not possible as I am not sure when the information is updated or not.

    You need to define the interface better in order to get a useful answer. There was no mention of dynamically changing data in your first question, just displaying data.

    You should perhaps read some tutorials about the observer pattern as that might be helpful to you.
