counting down in java
it would be for a library reservation system. this would be put on the computers with sessions from 15 minutes to 2 hours (in 15 minute chunks i.e, 15, 30, 45, 1 hour).
this program would countdown the remaining time on their session, with pop-up messages appearing every so often.
at the end of the session, the program will have to automatically log the user off.
any tips would be appreciated, thanks

Look at the Timer: http://download.oracle.com/javase/1....til/Timer.html which includes a schedule and allows you to execute a TimerTask every x milliseconds.
The TimerTask itself will need to be extended and overridden, and runs as a thread, so the run() must be overridden to take care of the task you want (such as a JDialog).
Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)PHP Code:
