I am a C/C++ winapi developer and have to rewrite a "Dialog based" application in java, so that it will execute as an applet in any browser.
My java skills are very few, since my knowledge is limited to past college classes.
The application is not a large scale one, since it only implements a GUI, with a few screen interactions, which are driven by data from udp network connections.
In a windows development model, i would create worker threads wich handle the network communication and feed the gui with data through the window message queue, probably using SendMessage or PostMessage functions.
So my question is, how do i implement this kind of model in java?
I am not interested, for the time being, in learning another model of thread communication, i just want to know if there is anyway to apply the same model in java, because i am quite familiar with it.
Thanks in advance!
