    Default database using jdbc for graphics - if my idea is possible/viable

    Hello, i have been looking for some software to manage stocks for my fathers company that is simple.. and then thought of trying to make one myself (naturally, something simple).

    my question would be if its possible to do and if i could assume its viable for me to try, taking into consideration what i do know of sql/java.

    idea: making tables in microsoft sql
    using java to make a visable window with menus/savings for backup/..
    somehow make this into a "runnable" java file by double-clcking

    what i know: creat tables/delete/insers/updates on microsoft sql and how to use them with jdbc, i can make the graphic part of the program (well, made a game with java before)

    sry if my post aint rly specific/explanatory about either idea/knowledge.

    thank you and cumps

    I am not sure what you expect in a reply. Are you seeking for advice on whether you should take the plunge and try to develop the app? Why not give it a try?

    Well, if you know Swing and you know JDBC then that's the two main technologies you'll need (Java-wise) out of the way.

    By "microsoft sql" I do hope you mean SQLServer and not Access. If you mean Access then I would suggest picking another database to build on, as it's got little JDBC support.

    I shouldn't have to point this out, but it's bad manners to ask a new question here after not bothering to reply to the response on your earlier thread.
    Problem with Keylistener, some help pls

    ty for the replyes.

    @Tolls - yes, i meant sql server (thought what i know doesnt go much further then what i mentioned above... but still learning)

    @doWhile - i asked this becouse there could have been some obvius problem (ex: need other program to do something decent, have some big problem in use) that i was missing due to this being the first thing i would be trying to do by myself without any "pointers".

    @DarrylBurke - i think i was able to fix my problem meanwhile, so i ended up not checking the thread. You are indeed correct, i should have said i got it working when it was me that started the thread

    It's not going to be a small task, depending on what you mean by "managing stocks", but you have the 2 key techs in place then.
    Start small...
