Quick and easy question about SQL databases.
I am building an application which gets alot of information from files. Since I have never used SQL in a java enviroment I decided to use hashMaps, however as I have got further into the projects this has got very messy.
Basically, all I want is a .sql which the program does queries on and stores the returned result into variables. I have been looking into how to implement SQL into java and it appears I need to install an SQL connecter and other stuff.
The question is, when I compile this program as a Jar file, will the user need to have SQL (or connecter) installed on their computer for it to work and does the sql file get packaged into the jar file.
