Hi,
Ok i am trying to find out if am in the right forum. Here is what am trying to do.
I am trying to Create a website when i post up info about people. I store the info of the people in Microsoft Access format. The web site has a search engine that can search the database for info and display the reults in a window.
Its sort of like a forum. kind of like this site . People have to sign up and have a password and stuff. And they can add info to their profile and so can me.
So am i in the right place? Can Java do these things.
NB it has to able to work on the net.
Its a project am working on and i need to know where to start.
ALso is there any software pacakage out there that can do this stuff without too much coding?
Yours Respectfully
Avin Sinanan
Thanks for your time

Hi Avinsinanan
Yup, you are definitely in the right forum. Or one of them anyway - you may also want to visit the JSP, JDBC and possibly the HTML and JavaScript forums as well.
To achieve your objective, you can essentially write servlets to handle your business logic, connect to your database using JDBC, and render the results to the client using JSP pages.
Works like a charm

avinsinanan,
Please change your name to be compliant with JavaRanch's naming policy. It should not be obviously fictitious.
Your displayed name should be 2 separate names with more than 1 letter each. We really would prefer that you use your REAL name.
You can change your name: here.
Thanks,
Cindy

Mark Howard,
Hello thanks for the advice.
By chnace do you know any web pages on the net that uses JSP and JBDC?
I would like to see what can be accomplished before i start leraning. I want to see if the pages will laod fast or slow. Also do viewwers of the web page need any plug in's? Eg. To view Flash web pages you need Shock wave flash installed. DO JSP and JDBC pages need any plug in's?
Thanks again for your time. Sorry for the trouble but I am very very new to this Web Design thing.
