Hi everyone...

I just finished making a program for Video Rental in java..its not much..just retrieves the data from the DB and we can add or edit it...it works perfectly. But now, i want it to display the "Client Name" and "Client ID" field from my Client table and "movie Name" and "Movie ID" field from the Movies table in the database. I want it all to be displayed as a single table with 4 fields respectively but i can't see to do it. I know its a very basic thing but its not wrking fr me. I am attaching my whole program over here. Please look into it and see if any1 can help me out..I tried googling and den implementing various types of codes in it..but then if i alter my program, it gives an error. Any type of help will be appreciated.

Thanks

well ... no one is going to download and check all your code, post the relevant code here and we might be able to check what's missing.
and no, posting your entire application is not necessary, just the relevant code/method

hmm ok thanks for clearing it up stultsuke...m actually a newbie in asking questions in forums and all so that is why i didnt know how to go about it....so i will rephrase my question again...this is the code of the file that retrieves the data from the database

now this code interacts with the data from the database and i want all the data to be displayed as a single table using JTable command but the problem is that since this is a program with dynamic data, the changes that i do to the DB using my application are not reflected into the table.

so can anyone please help me with accomplishing that..

any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks

The data base changes wont be reflected in the JTree u need to use some refresh methods to refresh the data .
