    Java Applications


    I am new to Java programming so forgive me if these questions seem out of
    place.

    1)Ok, so I have been programming using Delphi and VB etc for various clients,
    why might I want to develop a GUI client application (not an applet) using
    Java?

    2)If my application is to be installed on a machine that only has DOS (say)
    how can I access a database such as Oracle, Sybase, SQLBase, Dbase etc.

    3) If I cannot access the above databases, which ones can I access under
    DOS.

    Regards.

    Re: Java Applications

    In answer to (2) and (3): to run a Java program you need a JRE (Java
    Runtime Environment) for the platform. There is no JRE available for DOS,
    not that I've heard of, although I wish there were. My answer to (1) is:
    I'm developing a GUI client application in Java so that I can learn Java.
    No better way of learning a language than doing a mid-sized project in it.
