Hey all,

How do I get data from SQL (a file or server, I don't really know) so that I can use it in my java program (which is a GUI)?
I have a url(***.****.net), a server (i think?), a username and a password.

thanks

"JDBC" is the keyword you're looking for.

hye paul.
well I think I have JDBC installed, but I don't really know where to go from there. It seems to me that I need to install a driver that connects to my SQL such as SQL server, or jDTS and also select classpaths and other thing that I don't know. Does this sound right?

JDBC is part of Java. Yes, you need a JDBC driver. I suggest reading the JDBC tutorial.

Moving to our very own JDBC forum.

bit curious - is JDBC a software or a platform. Is jar files enough to create java programs to communicate with DB?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
