doubly -linked list

> I desparately need help with these topic. Currently, I am doing a project using doubly link list data structure and swing components. However, I just could not get the data items of the doubly link list to display on the JTextArea. Does anybody out there know how to solve this problem?
Could you be more specific about your problem? Maybe show some of the code in question? Also, why are you not simply using the LinkedList that comes with the Java API?
If all the objects in your existing list have a
toString() (which they should, so if they don't then and one), then maybe all you need to do is iterate through the list and
append() the String representation of each object to the
TextArea (you could throw in a '\n' after each one, if it makes things look nicer). The
List in the Java API has a
toString() already, rendering the whole task even more trivial.
