    Default I building a Chat Program with NetBeans, need to know some few ideas

    Can anyone tell me where the main conversation will be taking place?

    This is part of the codes
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import java.awt.*;

    public ChatJava() {
    JFrame frame= new JFrame(); //this constructor constructs an instance of a class each time
    frame.addJFrame(TextAreaName name); // a new chat is sent

    public static void main(String[] args) { //one main method. 599 lines to this chat program from NetBeans Java

    if(txtAreaName=true) { //txtAreaName is referring to a actionPerformed in jButton#
    } system.out.println("txtAreaName"); { // does this look like the right setup?


    try {
    } catch(java.IOException); {

    Please use code tags to post your code rather than quote tags. If you haven't already, please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    What do you mean "where?"
