Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.

When answering a question please:
Read the question carefully
Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar
If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or mark it down. Insults are not welcome
If the question is inappropriate then click the 'vote to remove message' button
Insults, slap-downs and sarcasm aren't welcome. Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.
Hey everyone! Last fall, a friend of mine gave me an app idea. It was a multiplayer game that she was handmaking for a while and she wanted me to make a digital version of it.
The rules of the game are similar to Cards Against Humanity - each round, a question is displayed and every player has to answer it with one of the cards in his deck. A delegated player picks the funniest match and the winner gets a point.
I spent a lot of time and effort making this. Any review or feedback would be appreciated!
We can't review or give feedback - we don't have the app to look at - and if you start posting EXE files no one will download them, if you post a site link we'll assume it's spam, and a store link we know it's spam.
So all we can go on is the description: which is so close to the original that it's probably actionable:
We own the name “Cards Against Humanity,” the graphic design of our game, the slogan, logos, and all of our writing. That means you need a license from us to use any of those things. Please don't make something that's an obvious knockoff of Cards Against Humanity's brand or name. In the United States you have to defend your intellectual property or you lose control of it; please don't force us into a legal conflict where we have to defend ourselves—we just want to write jokes.
I'm not a solicitor, nor do I live in 'murica - but in the UK we have the A moron in a hurry test[^] we this would probably fail.
So ... best I can do: not a review, not really feedback - but I'd think long and hard before I took any further steps with this app if I was you ...

This program is supposed to calculate the area of an equilateral triangle, a square, and a hexagon, given a line length (s) 5 times each and pass them into their own respective arrays. It then calculates the average area of each, the area closest to the average, and the area furthest from the average in each array. Every time I run the code it returns an area of 0.0 for the closestTriangle, closestSquare, and closestHexagon. I cannot figure out why it won't calculate the areas correctly. Can someone please steer me in the right direction so I can figure out where I went wrong?
I am new to maven and javaFX. I am having trouble loading my fxml files into the FXMLoader. And also I don't really understand the project structures with Maven and without Maven.
I found this article on stackoverflow which seems quite comprehensive, however I could not understand the explanation why, in a Maven project, I need to duplicate the folder structure in "resources".
I tried to post an imagefor better explanation but was unable to find the option in this forum.
Thanks for replying. That tutorial I had already read. They don't talk much about the structure of projects. In a photo, you can see how they copy the folder structure in "resources" but they do not explain why or if it is mandatory to do so.
Hello, I'm studying from 0 to programming in Java and I would like to get, if someone can share, some PDF with solved basic exercises of programming in Java in Spanish preferably. My current level is Hello world and little else.
I am currently working on j-Table in net-beans where I have populated it with data fetched from database. Now I need to apply search functionality in it. I have gone through some of the examples however they were only getting manual data(columns and row-data) from the code(not from DB). Need help
You can do it with one call but I am not a fan of that because it does not deal with error scenarios. So for example if the first call modifies the database but the second one doesn't the only way to handle that if the second call fails is to rollback the first. Even when it works getting the code correct is requires knowledge both initially and for maintenance programmers in the future.
But if you have a transactional work flow then you can create a single stored proc that represents that work flow and it can be responsible for calling other stored procs and also be responsible for correctly handling error conditions and determine how to report such errors.
Keep in mind as well that multiple result sets can be returned from a single proc (at least In at least a couple of dbs that I have worked with.) And that would need to be handled in the java db layer with either solution although it is much more obvious with the first solution that I suggested.
