    Default Help with Scanner project - pleeeeaaase..

    Hey guys,

    I'm new to java and I need to do this project. It's an app that works with a scanner. It imports what the scanner scanned and saves it in a share folder in the network. I'm not asking anyone to do it ( and I know everyone hates it just like I do ) but ideas about how to do it... Should I write different classes for each functionality that the app has? (import image, process image, delete, search option btw scanned images and such) or write them under one whole project file? By the way this is a desktop app.

    Thanks for everyone who takes time to give me ideas and help. :)

    What library are you using to drive the Scanner? AFAIK, Java doesn't have classes in the core library for this sort of thing (but I could be wrong since I don't work with programming scanners).

    I will be using JTwain library to import images from the scanner, that's my game plan for now but I have not decided yet. Since I'm new in Java, I don't have a strict idea.. I'd appreciate any help.
    Thx in advance to everyone

    Thanks for the tip on that. I've never heard of it, but I've now got it on my radar should I need Scanner capabilities.

    Probably most important for you at this stage is to improve your overall Java knowledge. Just how much do you know? Have you gone through any of the Sun Java tutorials? Are you thinking of using a GUI with your app? Swing (again, if so, have you gone through the Sun Swing tutorials? -- highly recommended!)?

    No you don't need Scanner capabilities because JTwain lets you have a virtual scanner to test your code... And yes, I've studied Sun tutorials and also some others about Swing and made my GUI already. Now I need to figure out if I need to write all the functionalities like I mentioned in my first message, in different classes or what =/

    Thank you for your time, Fubarable! :)

    Here is an update.. I will pull the images that scanner scanned from a share folder in the network, I don't have to connect to the scanner or anything. I just need to pull the tiff image from the folder that the scanner will put in.. I will appreciate any help! Does anyone know any other way than JTwain to work with scanners and tiff images?

    Thanks a bunch!
