Any Computer Programmers here???
 
Just wondering if there were any fellow Redskins fans who were computer programmers. I have a question about Java programming. If there is anyone on here who is a java programmer, how can I make my java application read, add, or query to an Access database?


Sorry to get nerdy on you guys! :biggthump

i do java, c++ some c and asm, but i've never worked with access... only some sql and oracle, sorry.

SQL/access:

SQL:

google may have more, a quick search mainly brought up SQL crap...

I think there is a way, it has something to do with the database drivers of Java (which are default to use with SQL.) I'm thinking that JBoss would probably help, but I dont' know if that is extra cost or not. I haven't delt much with SQL. In fact, when I had taken a class on SQL a few years ago in college, the class was based on me reading the tutorial of Oracle. We had two online tests (which were open book) and that was all of that class! At work, we are working with some old stuff...might have been before you were born. I program in Clipper and we use the old DBU database system that comes with clipper. We use R&R Reports Writer to run reports against the dbu databases.

Basically what I am doing is programming some java on the side, and trying to figure out if my java program would be a better replacement for our client system. Since our client system is 16 bit, then as you know, it will run pretty fast! HOWEVER, I know that down the road - possibly even a few years from now, we will eventually be forced away from 16 bit applications altogether, and will be forced to only program in 32 bit and even 64 bit. I'm thinking Windows Vista might pull us in that direction, and I would like to have a decent app in the can, ready to read databases so that it wouldn't be such a headache to switch everything out (besides having to transfer the data from the DBU database to either SQL or Access.)

if you're really 30, i doubt it was before i was born ;)

Clipper started out as "Summer 87".......in 1987.

Don't talk to me, Malcolm is a smartass. Im in a java class now and hate it! I'm starting to pick it up thanks to some helpfull tutoring!

I started in COBOL/TSO/IMS/DB2 in '85.
Transitioned to mostly Oracle PL/SQL a few years back.
Over the years have had my hands in IBM Mainframe, VAX, UNIX. Java/EJB/JSP, VB6 and VB.NET.

For the record... I hated Java too.

Your webserver would have to be configured to access an Access ODBC/JDBC driver. I'm not sure that Microsoft would make it easy for Java to play nice with one of its own products. If this is just a standalone applet (not served), you're probably SOL.

This driver is free: [url="http://rmijdbc.objectweb.org/Access/access.html"]http://rmijdbc.objectweb.org/[/url]

Good Luck

Not wanting to do a web application per se, but just wanting to to build a java application that can read, write, and edit data from an Access database. If I could somehow configure it to work with DBU, I'd just stick with that (Lord knows that would make conversion alot simpler for us.) I'll check out that driver. Thanks! :)

Get everything working?

I just saw this thread.

for simple java programs, i used "netbeans". you can easily implement access with it, if you register it with ODBC you should will be able to get it to work on your desktop pc.

I have honestly not been home long enough to give it a chance. Let me ask you guys another question. Which compiler do you guys recommend? I learned Java on JGRASP - but it strictly uses the Swing libraries and does not complie the program into a stand alone executable (meaning of course not having to use a compiler to run the program.)
