Hello. I need to complete the following assignment. We have used Derby before and we just used some XML in our last assignment.
Do these directions make it seem as if it is my choice? I would prefer to work with a Derby database.
Also, does anyone have any good ideas on starting this up, or at least some wise input?

Create an Object-Oriented To-Do List manager. Your program must allow users to:
1. Create lists of tasks
2. Add to and remove tasks from task lists
3. Mark tasks as done
4. Save lists to a data store
5. Load lists from a data store
6. Display all available task lists and select a given list to modify

Matt,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Typically data store means a database, but it could mean a file. Reading this, I think the intent is to use Derby. And since that's what you want to do, it doesn't really matter if an XML file is allowed .

Thanks! I just noticed that the teacher posted this link though -
https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/jaxp/

Does that hint towards XML now? Maybe it is just in case and does not matter which we use....
I'm not sure, but I won't have a chance to ask before it is due. Hm.

Yes, it does. You didn't tell us that before .
