I need to know if it is possibile to serialize and save my application (called NewJFrame in NetBeans environment) and then recall it when wanted just from a running instance of NewJFrame itself.
When I load the object what methods I have to call? Have I to close the running NewJFrame?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Once you deserialized a JFrame you show it the same way you show a JFrame created the "normal" way.
Also: Serializing Swing components is not a good approach for persistence in an application. It's a much better idea to separate your model from your view and controller and to persist the model alone (using serialization or another technique).
