hi people,

want to connect and experiment with a database and some code with a few tutorials

i dont think intelij community edition connects (or has tools) to connect to databases
is there a way around this,or do i need to use netbeans or some other ide to accomplish this

also,if somebody has some good links to sql java tutorials they know are good,please let me know

"Connect to a database" means a lot of things. If you're looking for an IDE feature that allows you to connect through the IDE and issue SQL commands and see results, I would check the IntelliJ resources. There certainly are plug-ins to do that for the Eclipse IDE, and I use them all the time.

If you are developing an application that is supposed to connect to a database, the IDE isn't responsible for that. And apps developed in the IntelliJ IDE can very definitely connect themselves to databases.

Many databases come with one or more "control panel" applications. For example, Oracle's SQL*PLUS, DB2's "db2" console command, PostgreSQL's "psql" console command, MySql's "mysql" command. There are often GUI DBMS control apps as well. And web-based ones such as the database plugins for WebMin.

It all depends on what database you are looking to talk to and how you prefer to do it.

Regardless, this is the JSF forum and JSF doesn't have any DBMS features. It gets its database services the same way that plain webapps do. So I'm moving this question to the IDEs forum.

hi tim

i am doing a small project that will store some details and descriptions of a few machines and have such things as contact numbers addresses etc
want to also build a little GUI for it using javaFX,so i would think i need to have the program store this information in a database
i know you wouldnt have to,but i thought it would be worth it to start getting a program to deposit and retrieve information in a database
was just thinking of using mysql,what would you recommend?

thanks for posting
