    Question JTables

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to save the contents the of the jtable together with all its fonts and everything else. The program compiles without any errors but When i try to save the contents of the JTable an exception is thrown in the tablesaveas method in the below method

    Please note that i am saving the jtable as an object. I am providing the below runnable example so you guys can compile and run and see what i mean.

    Here is the code

    Code:
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;
    import java.awt.print.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import javax.swing.event.*;
    import javax.swing.table.*;

    Question

    Continued from the above thread

    This is the exception that is thrown. The exception does not seem to be thrown from my own code.

    Here is the exception thrown

    As you can see from my above code in the tablesaveas method i am saving
    six objects but if i change the tablesaveas method to this(see the below code) the table is saved without any problems

    Code:
     public void tablesaveas ()
    	{
    		//This function saves the model of the table to disk using the user
    		//specified file name
    
    		//This is the function in which the exception is thrown
    
    		if(FileChooser1.showSaveDialog(fr) != JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION)
    		{
    			return;
    		}
    
    		try
    		{
    			File f = FileChooser1.getSelectedFile();
    			SF = (f.toString() + ".DAT");
    			FileOutputStream fStream = new FileOutputStream(SF);
    			ObjectOutput stream = new ObjectOutputStream(fStream);
    
    			//The below two command lines saves the table model and table column data
    			//as an object using the user specified file name
    			stream.writeObject(Table1.getModel());
    			stream.writeObject(Table1.getColumnModel());
    			stream.flush();
    			stream.close();
    			fStream.close();
    		}
    
    		catch (Exception e)
    		{
    			Label1.setText("A table saving error has occurred");
    		}
    
    	}
    The only difference as you can see is that i am writing two objects instead of six and i don't really know what's wrong . I don't know if this is a bug in Java or am i missing something.

    I am using JDK 1.4.2_04

    I hope someone can help me with this problem

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thank You

    Yours Sincerely

    Richard West
