    Default I have to create a chatroom application, that connects to a database JUST NEED ADVICE

    Hello, how can I do this.

    The proyect is this

    1. phpbb or simplemachines forum where the user registrates
    2. chat application designed in java that takes the stuff from the forum data base in order to login to the chatroom

    What should I use to accomplish this, I am not that basic in Java, but not really that advanced, I need to know what should I use to connect to the databse, to conneche users, etc...

    I just want some small answers not a lot of trouble for you guys :).

    I would also appretiate some advice for a project if you think this one is not yet doable by someone that has not a lot of knowledge in jave or databases... or what could I do to make it easy to develop.
    Thanks

    Personally I would start by googling "Java" and "MySQL" (if that is what your database will probably be)... so maybe you first should make up your mind on which database you wish to connect and then look if someone has done it before. :)
    As far as I know java has a database API - so maybe checking out "java +database" would be helpful also.

    JDBC is the database API.
    Most databases have a driver for it (don't use MS Access!).
    Here's the tutorial.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Default Re: I have to create a chatroom application, that connects to a database JUST NEED AD

    Hello everyone, I just got an advice from a person that told me it would be easier to use an IRC server and to make the program login through the login.php in the forum, in order not to access the database directly... so about the IRC integration, which is somethig I don't know... could you guys please help me on this thread? I didn't really mean to make a new one but I thought that forum was a little more specific... Thanks.
