    Default need help in uploading images in swing program!!!

    Hi guys!

    i am quite a noob in java... don't worry, i got the basics already...
    uhm... I just want to ask this question:
    'How do you make a program not terminate imediately once you clicked a button?...

    Grrr.. let me try to explain it this way....

    uhmm... I'm working on a simple project that says, "My Profile Manager"..
    This program has fields for the user's name, age, etc, something like that...

    I'm just a noob so, the project only works one-way... meaning, the profile of certain people are built-in within the program...

    This is what happens, when a person enters his name, age, etc,... His picture will show up beside the textfields... (I got that already)...

    This is simple but my problem is, once I clicked the button, for the first time, it works.... but when i try to type another name, the picture doesn't change... I know I'm missing something here... please help????:confused:

    Default ok.. just focus on the colored lines...

    Java Code:
     
    private void jButton1ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt){                                         
     
           String name = nameField.getText();
           String age = ageField.getText();
    
    
            if(name == "John"){
                jLabel2.setIcon(new javax.swing.ImageIcon(getClass().getResource("/swingPack/joham.jpg")));
            }else if(name == "Smiley"){
                jLabel2.setIcon(new javax.swing.ImageIcon(getClass().getResource("/swingPack/smiley.jpg")));
            }
          }
          //[COLOR="DarkGreen"]-> the problem here is, when i type a name for the first time, a new photo will show up... but when I type a new name which supposedly corresponds to a different photo, the previous photo that showed up doesn't change...[/COLOR]


    this is my code under my Button's action...

    If you want to upload the image,do you want to insert into the database?There are many ways.Search for the com.oreilly package for uploading data, it uses MultipartRequest .

    try this
    1) use name.equal("...") NOT name == ...

    2) why don't you just use this:
    jLabel2.setIcon(new ImageIcon("swingPack/smiley.jpg"));

    Actually button works each time you click it, but label is not changed. You should repaint your label, each time you click the button.
