Help with editing within a java swing program
We've just been given our final project for my java programming class. Its
a follow up class to a c++ programming class so we've just started programming
in java about 3 months ago. We're not too advanced. Anyways here's the program
we're supposed to make:
Create a GUI app using swing. It should show you a bunch of student information
that is supplied to the program from a database using MS Access. While the
user is viewing this info from your java program they can edit and save the
information. Use some kind of middleware to do this (JDBC, ODBC, etc.)
The problem i'm having with this program is the whole editing of information
from a ms access file (middleware part). I'm having no problem creating the
GUI. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.
In order to access the Access database, you will have to use the JDBC-ODBC bridge in your program as there isn't a JDBC driver for MS Access (at least not that I know of).
You might want to pick up a copy of Core Java 2 Volume 2 to read up on how to perform database operations.
