I am trying to make an Account Management System (Spendings) for a firm. Like for each week the expense and earnings. On every week- there should be a weekly report generated.

I want this as an offline application. I was asked to do this by a family friend. The end party who would be ultimately using this Application would be a person having no idea of code and stuffs. I have read that on converting to jar file we can double click and execute the application.

Anyone got any link to which I can refer to? I have developed project on localhost- not familiar with an executable offline application.

Any help would be welcome.

Can I do it in jsp?? And IDE: netbeans?

Well first of all there are a bazillion applications of this type already available, many of which are free. Do you, your friend, have some special requirements that a general accounting program won't give you out of the box? No point reinventing the wheel.

If you are intent on writing one yourself then you can choose pretty much any programming language and IDE you want. The world's your oyster!

Some advice: at this point where you're just starting out deciding what you want your application to do, forget about code. Don't go near your computer. Get yourself comfortable with a pencil, paper, and eraser, and write out on plain English (or other language) what your system should do and how you are going to do it.

Only when you can form your ideas in your mind and write it out are you ready to write any code.

Choose a programming language you are familiar with and defer your choice of any other technology, including a database, until you absolutely need to.

here is a link to help with creating an executable jar.

as they mention, to access files you need to use URL not File.
you also might want to read the tutorial at Oracle.
