I have a feeling this is not the best place to discuss java beans for forms (11) but ....
my bean doesnt work! In fact it hangs ... So the next question is, how to debug a bean...Typically I would just put System.out.println statements in java to
get some idea of what goes on. But in a bean...I'm getting the feeling that doesn't work. Where does console output go in a bean? I'm thinking nowhere. So then what do you do? Write a file? Can you write a file from a bean?
After I wrote that I realized that perhaps the java console gets stdout from applets. (Or not. I don't know.) I'll check that. Problem with the java console is it is either bugging you by being there or it's not there and you don't remember that it exists.
