|Java_desktop_application by a.r.okans(m): 12:59am On Dec 24, 2012|
I am working on a project (desktop-based application) on building a platform where students and lecturers can interact concerning the school projects being carried out by the students. I have just read a good part of Java SE and want to implement skills through tactile means. I have done a bit in designing interfaces, abstraction and modelling as well as creating classes to accommodate the Student, Staff , these two extending a generic User class. I am presently reading databases in order to be able to store information about the student, staff as well as the projects. I need people with experience in this aspect to help so that i can move faster and complete this project within the timeline I have. Thanks in advance.

Instead of mysql, u can use access as ur database without worrying your client with database installations. For a project like ds, access won't b a bad idea

Nice, was thinking of the same project a few months back but i got occupied by many projects of mine
Anyway, as of this moment apart from the login screen what other screen do you have ?
You posted a non working code of your login- here is a snipet from my own login in my projects i did a year ago

ermmm.. Why not use git?? (Am assuming by projects you mean software projects though it can manage any thing that is text based) Its opensource and it has been tested. If you don't like the command line or if you want to add features that are particular to students, provide a wrapper application then run git as a seperate process and communicate with it using any IPC method you prefer.

Try adding Class.forName("mysqldriver" d mysql deriver shud b smth lyk com.mysql something. Am not actually sure but u did not refer to any database driver here. The only place you can do dis is in javaDB(derby) it sort of broadcast itself like JINI

@Op, have you populated your database? Please post a screen shot of your computer screen, that will make it easier.
|Re: Java_desktop_application by javadoctor(m): 7:29am On Jan 28, 2013|
The persistence technology you are using is Obsolete.Please go and readUp about Java Persistence API.So you dnt have to go through the pain of logging into the database with the DriverManager class,in Jpa ,the persistence.xml has the persistence unit configured with the entity classes.What ide are you using to develop? JPA has simplified database applications by persisting entity Objects

Please, guys, im sorry for not giving regular updates on this topic. Actually, im on internship with a software firm in Victoria Island and the beginning of the year is usually filled with activities, so im a bit busy now with office DULLING work that I cannot abandon(that is what I'm being paid for now). I will be completing my stuff there in 3 weeks. Then, I can focus more on this project as I mean to really complete it Insha Allah. Please, suggestions are welcome at any time. Keep them coming in. I am also interested in any1 with JSP and servlets knowledge. Let us exchange ideas and help each other grow, Candles light candles. Thank you.
