Hi Jim:

Am jumping in here since I ahve not been paying attention to this thread.. But here's an answer
to one of your questions:

Object.getClass() gives the Class object to which your object belongs. For example, Object.getClass().getName()
will give you the name of the class.. etc..(since you say you are new to java, i may suggest
that you look at the api..)
