    Ok, well you have the items from each box that are selected. Check if they're the ones you want.


    You could do it that way or use indices.

    If you're talking to me, what you have is not what I wrote, so I don't expect it to work.
  3. In Topic: Communication between two web applications

    Posted 24 Jul 2014

    I would suggest starting simple, but as an aside a web server should be able to handle many (~100 to 1000) requests per seconds. That's simple requests. Even if you're pulling from a DB via a application server, it should be able to handle a reasonable amount.

    I see your point though. Multi-threading requests to the same port is probably not going to be as beneficial as requests to different ports/urls.

    To the same domain or URL? Are you providing different POST parameters for each request (if at all)? Why would you request the same data several times? I'll assume the data is different with each request.

    Whether threading will speed things up is something I can't help you with. Too many unknowns. There are plenty of articles/forum posts online that address that issue. Why not write a test and see? If you had a high-volume application, then it would probably help. I suggest starting simple though.

    In addition to what AGENT_P6 said, which I think is the source of your error, you can simply cast the result of getSelectedItem() directly to a String, if that's the data type of the objects stored in the combobox. Furthermore, there's no need to use getSource() if you know what widget the event was triggered by. You usually see that method called when the same listener is attached to multiple widgets.

    JComboBox<String> box1 = init();
    JComboBox<String> box2 = init();
    box1.addActionListener(new ActionListener()
         public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
              String s1 = (String)box1.getSelectedItem();
              String s2 = (String)box2.getSelectedItem();
