I'm trying to nail down my interfaces between db/network/gui and trying to decide how to return results from the db to the gui.
I started with a Room object which knew about the room details (name,date,rate etc) with suitable get/set methods. Having read various posts about making things expandable/generic I decided this may be too specific so moved back to the String array as specified in the assignment interface. This will need some sort of meta-data (or hard coding!) to work out what values are in which position. I'm now looking at a cut-down version of a ResultSet, that implements just a few of the methods in the ResultSet interface, including a (cut-down) ResultSetMetaData.
This would require less changes if the database were to be replaced to a "real" database with, maybe a JDBC driver. Also ResultSets should be familiar to junior programmers, but I'm wondering if it may be too much effort.
What do others think?
I guess this doesn't help with what gets passed from the gui to the db? SQL is definatelty too OTT.
