Hi !!
I am a fresher and doing a live project.The client requirement is that when he connects their site he should be given a provision to get the current database copied in a csv or a txt file on their local machine.
Please help me in this .
Thanks.

I know of 2 ways you could do this:
1.) You can write a java app that connects to a remote db
as long as it's on the network. Just put the ip address
of the server in the getConnection() method call:
Class.forName("whatever.jdbc.MyDriver");
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc://128.0.0.1/dbname");
Send over an SQL, get the result set and format it and
save it to a file.
2.) Usually on this type of project, you need a server application that connects to the
database using a JDBC driver and some SQL. Then you need
a client app that connects to the server app using RMI, CORBA,
or whatever so you can call the methods remotely. This allows
for more than one client to connect to the server.
I'm not sure what you're looking for but hope this helps.
