Hi, I am working on my next year's school project for my A levels, and I need a bit of help in deciding how to continue my program's design. Basically the project involves writing a stock managment software, for a fictional company.
Now at the core of this programm lies the database containing all the information regarding the stock. My question is, how should I design this database, should I use some RDBMS or should I just write some stucts or better yet classes that relate to each other through some methods and then write them to a binary file?
Mind you even after learning the whole Data Base unit of studies I have no clue whatsoever on how I should go about accessing the content of that database from my c++ programm, since the course material is all theory and no practice. However I am willing to learn if it is the correct way it should be done.
Thanks in advance for any help.
