    Lightbulb help with library sub system

    i am developing a book borrowing system for my project in school, and i am planning to use Java (for portability). It's gotta be a LAN-based system.


    What software should I be installing in my PC to start programming, like a database software and and IDE perhaps?

    Why don't yo use Derby/JavaDB? It comes bundled with your Java 1.6 JDK distribution with all the manuals and drivers. It is a complete relational database management system with ISO 1992 compliant SQL implemented. Why don't people check what they have downloaded and installed?

    kind regards,

    Jos

    Agreed with you Jos. Please just install looking at the name only. But not worried about the details on that bundle, basically most of the time not even open and read the release note.

    If you're talking about Derby/JavaDB, installing it is extremely easy: simply put the derby.jar in your JRE/lib/ext directory and load the proper driver (the embedded one most probably). Don't forget to append ";create=true" to your URL the first time you use the database system because you don't have a database yet (it doesn't harm to leave it in your URL the next time because it won't recreate a database if you already have it).

    kind regards,

    Jos
