After over a decade, I decided to blow the dust off my university dissertation and get it working again.
Oddly, NetBeans can’t seem to find the libraries for
javax.swing. Every single thing I imported for
javax.swing can no longer be found with “cannot find symbol” for
I can’t find where the library would be to import it!
Should I be using a different version of the JDK? Do I have to download
javax from somewhere and include it?
I managed to resolve this by downloading a different JDK (1.8, which I think contains JDK 8) from oracle. Works now. Maybe the other JDK I downloaded is too new, and there were changes to the packages, or maybe it didn’t include all the packages. Either way, done now.
