Adding a GUI to an existing program
Posted on 2010-09-21
I'm working on a personal project that is an address book, I have all the underlying code/classes that can extract the details from a database, but I would like to add a front end/user interface to the system in order to make it more user friendly.
The package has been built in Netbeans, so I suppose using JFrame will be the best option, but I've heard about javaFX and I'm wondering if this would be an option.
For starters I have a straight forward class called person that has methods to get personal details such as name, dob, email, mobile and a class called address, as multiple people have the same address.
I would like to pull these details into a display window, Hopefully this is not to complex to answer here?
I know how to create and to add features to a JFrame but I'm unsure how to link in the existing methods
