PLEASE WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS CODES, I KEEP GETTING ERROR AT THIS STAGE

String result = ci.insertDetails(cid, name, dateOfBirth,

The error tells you exactly what you need to fix. Look carafully how you declare the insertDetails and how you are calling it

thanks but that's why i seek for help, i am not as good as you are so please just help out ok.

Compare these:
insertDetails(java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,int,java.lang.String,int)

insertDetails(java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,java.lang.String,javax.swing.JLabel,java.lang.String,int)

One is the declaration. Don't you know you should call methods with the arguments they are declared.

You are not calling with the right arguments. Check the declaration and call it with the right arguments

As I said:

You are not calling it with the right arguments. Check the declaration and call it with the right arguments

When you declare a method you need to call it with the number and type of arguments that was declared.

Comments
thanks for all your help man.

okay thank, i got another question...

am i suppose to pass the label fields as argument or the text fields??

am i suppose to pass the label fields as argument or the text fields??

What are the arguments of the method?

And on a more personal note, and don't take this the wrong way but it is true and lots of people will agree with me:
The title of this thread is "Rmi database insert". And from the code I think you are trying to call some remote method: CustomerInformationServer.insertDetails.
Now it is clear that you lack the very basic: Calling methods. You don't even know how to call a single method and pass arguments to it and you are trying to do something like that? Shouldn't you first learn the basics and then do more complex stuff?

And if you tell me that you wrote that code and you know how to call methods, because it is true, you do that in your code, I will say that you need a lot more practice, because I can assure you: the error you get has nothing to do with RMI. It has to do with calling a single method with the right arguments,which is basic java.

The error tells you exactly what arguments the method takes, as some of the initial posts say, and you have been informed that you are calling the method with the wrong arguments.

So now you ask, if you should pass the label or the text fields. It is clear that, even though you wrote that entire code, which some parts of it could be taken from a book example, you do not know the basics of calling methods with the right arguments.

So it is better for you to take a step back and focus more on improving your skills, before trying to do things you shouldn't be doing.
