New to Java..help needed please
I'm new to Java programming and have learnt the basics. I am planning to create an application for library management. I have some ideas about the app but am not sure how to start it. I would be grateful if anybody helps me out with the following issues:
1. How to create database connectivity and handle queries? And which database is the most suitable for Java?
2. How to know which package contain which classes and which one to include? Do I need to refer to the Java Documentation to know this or are there any commonly used packages for this type of application development?
It would be nice if anybody could also provide some online stuff to help me in this... Thanks in advance:) (and pls bear with me for the loooong post)
