Do you have design your project?
First you have to design your project, then you will go to codding otherwise not.
Project design means - just design yor system in your paper and plane what you want to do in this project.
Post the details.
Oh! You also dont mention which database software you will use.My SQL seems to me much easy to handle from Java.You can use file also.But database server is much better because it is easy to use.Choice is yours.
JamesCherrill is right.
Read this . It will help you a lot.
Hey everyone..thanks for the prompt reply..so this project is a typical Address Book which can add, delete sort, search contacts..thats it..its my first one. And ye the I would work wid SQL already done in college so that would be comfartable..so how do I proceed next.
Although you can start with the GUI, 99% of the time this is a bad idea because it leads to an implementation with too much data and logic embedded in the GUI. Normal "best practice" is to design on paper, then implement a class or classes for your address book's data and logic, test those using some hard-coded calls and print statements, then finally build your GUI on top of that. Google MVC (model-view-controller) for more discussion on why this is a good way to structure programs.
hey everyone..i got this code written...but whatever i do..m not able to save the records in the database...there are no compilation errors showing up but i m not getting whats going wrong...so please guys help me out asap...
It's easy.Design the interface by using jFrame form.Then start to coding.Insert,Delete,Update are also easy.You can use stacks or ques.Then sorting part also easy.Use one of insertion,selection,merge sort algorithms...:)
hey pro_learner....i did the whole coding part and its working fine..but the real problem lies in the database...the record are not reflecting in the MS Access database when i insert one...so what shud b done here?
M just an infant to java..just kno the ABC.. m tryin to work in small projects like address book...so can i get help like how to start...
Good that you came into the java world. It is not so difficult to work with java. As you want to develop an application, i would say , you must first know the core java. And make use of swing components. That would be nice to look and feel . Thank you.
