I am not a programmer but I need some help with java applet. I work lab where on hourly basis. Lab administrator have an online scheduling system which is a basically a web page with java applet. Everyone have to pick up the hours available through that web page. Because of summer and no classes there is much competition to pick up the hrs available in lab (these are the hrs made available by administrator or someone left his hrs). Now my question is, can I use any trick in java programming which notifies me as soon as hours are available in that java applet when I auto refresh web page (I don't want to sit and stare at computer screen at each refresh for availability of hrs)
I have attached a screenshot of that website
Yes you can. But actually the way I deals with here is not a trick, it's a quite a large development. Generate a mail in page refresh, actually in page load, with a specific condition which deals with your application.
