GUI for a background application.



I have develpoed an application that runs in the background (failsafe). Now I need to make a GUI for the same. I was wondering if I should make a seperate java file which talks to my background application and resets the parameters according to the user reauirements.


Please adivse if there is a possibility to change the parameters for the background application through an UiApplication.


Thanks in advance.

Re: GUI for a background application.

Yes, it is possible.


To organize talk between applications you can use GlobalEvents.


Take a look at GlobalEventListener class, and addGlobalEventListener() method in Appllication class.
