!! Help needed in developing a dictionary !!
I am currently developing a Dictioanry application in Java from English to my mother-tounge. I have 4 varaibles that i would like to store in a database :
// These Words are in Unicode English Language.
1. English Word (enwrd)
2. English Meaning (enmng)
// These words are in Unicode Panjabi (pa) language
3. Panjabi Word (pawrd)
4. Panjabi Meaning (pamng)
The trouble i am having is how to store them in some kind of database that i can run the search, add, update functions on. I dont wana use any external database engine (but if there is no other option i have to). Is it possible that i can store it in a text file, but i dont know how to run the functions on it.
Plz help me
One possible solution (file based):
Read the data from a file into a couple TreeMaps (so they can be sorted). One Map for english, one for Panjabi. Have a third HashMap for the English to Panjabi mapping. Of course, if you have a whole bunch of dictionary entries (> 100k), you may run into some memory limitations ... depending on your local hardware (and the verbosity of your definitions)
