    Default newbie question

    I am new to Java. I use to program in VB where I could create a small desktop app with a small db to store names.

    this could be compiled to run anywhere.

    So I guess my question is how do I go about it in Java?

    I guessing I can't use anything with a server (mysql, etc) because it can't be standalone.

    If someone could just point me in the right direction such as: use sqlite, random access, etc..

    I really like the idea of java, write one run anywhere.

    looking to create a desktop standalone

    i'm using ubuntu / netbeans

    thanks guys

    Ron, welcome to the forum, and I hope your question gets answered, but I do request that if you cross-post a question you provide links to the other cross-posts. Nobody likes duplicating work that's already been done, and really it's not fair to the volunteers who help out at this and other forums. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Default Thank You

    I'll keep that in mind. Forums are always my last resort. I do most of the work. Just need a nudge sometimes.:)
