Hi,

I have written an application in Java which uses a Hibernate middle tier and accesses an Informix database and a Crystal reports server.

For an assessment at school I need to submit this app to my lecturer or give him a URL where it lies.

This is an app written for my work and as such there is no external access to it. That leaves me finding a way to get it to him on CD.

I can change the Databse to postgreSQL easily and give him static copies of the report side of things.

I am looking for suggestions on the best format to give him the app. I have heard I can make it run from CD using BartsPE for windows.

All suggestions gratefully considered.

Ask your teacher, and ask your boss...

Quite possibly (very likely in fact) you won't be allowed to distribute the application outside the company you're working in.
It's their property, not yours, after all.

For my own graduation work I couldn't give my teacher access to my work either. It existed of some rather dangerously radioactive and poisonous materials and expensive, heavy equipment bolted quite firmly to the floor of a bunker.

Instead the teacher came to us, and had to make do with my thesis on paper.

Sounds like a Windows machine.

Thanks for the reply,

I actually had a dissertation from my boss to do 1/2 the work on the app at work during work hours and 1/2 at home , in return I have permission to distribute it but only in limited form with no actual data in the database, I plan to add dummy records to the postgreSQL one.

As for the lecturer, he is doing a research paper and the last time I spoke to him was October last year, he has not been in contact with any of his students since then.

So at this point I remain stuck with finding a way to get it to him. I am sending printouts of the generated reports as I can't get to the crystal server etc.

What's a Windows machine?
I was lucky to have access to one of those for an hour or two a day during the last stages of my project so I could run Word and Excel to create my thesis and associated charts.
We did try installing Windows 3.1 earlier on one of the machines in the lab but it was rather useless. The machine lacked the RAM to be able to even start Notepad...

No, this was the DOS days. When the internet was something you used over a 28k8 modem and the main protocol was ftp.
