    Default What parts of Java API should one know about to develop an app with these features?

    The desktop application I have in mind is an app for e-learning.

    Some things that I am confused about are:

    The user should be able to compare their progress rate, and their test scores with other students in the network (which comprises of the students in the class). For this:

    - Each student will probably need a login username and password and the app will connect to the internet to verify it? What should I read to understand the process of letting users sign in and sign up and have user accounts etc.

    - Can somebody give me an overview of how this kind of thing should be created in a few lines, or can you point me to a place where I can read about it?

    So you have a desktop app, and somewhere where results/progress/logins etc are stored on the web, which implies a webapp, probably REST service?
    Probably a database behind that service to hold everything.

    There's a question over security.
    How to ensure someone doesn't simply manually call the service with their credentials and supply inflated figures...depends how detailed you want to get.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    @Tolls Oh! I wish it could be simpler. Especially, security is a scary thing.
