I'm writing a Java programme, one with GUI for a project in college.
We separated the work into a few guys doing a few standalone Java classes. These standalone Java classes are run by doing the usual:
java -jar XXX.jar through the console. The functions of the class are issued through by typing commands into the class by way of the console. e.g. /chat mynick message
A few of the other guys designed the GUI.
The question now is.. how do we integrate these two together? I've been googling but I dont know a good sign post.
I'm thinking we need to write an interface between the GUI and the Java classes. Is there a term for this?
We're lost, please advise!
