I have been making a database that consists of text files and folders. I have decided to abandon the idea and make a new form of that database using Microsoft access files. I have been doing a bit of research to figure out if I can do this easily. I have a basic understanding of java and a complex understanding of programming. If anyone can provide me with a base for a program that does what I am asking, then please respond with instruction or a complete program as well as ways to do various tasks like editing data, adding new entries, displaying the entries, and filtering through the entries. Thank you for your time!
Start with the Jacksess home page, the FAQ and the cookbook page. Between them, they provide a fair amount of information to get you going. If you get stuck, report back here with what you tried, and how that didn't work, and we'll try to help.
Where did you get those imports from? In the cookbook, I see classes like Database, Table, Row and Cursor - all of which are in the com.healthmarketscience.jackcess package. For those you'll need to add the Jackcess jar file to the classpath.
It's important to clearly describe what's happening. Are you getting an error about how the import cannot be resolved? If so, make sure the jar file you downloaded can be found. In Eclipse, you can add the jar file as a library.
1) Right-click the program in the Package Explorer
2) Select Build Path...
3) Select Configure Build Path
4) Click on the Libraries tab
5) Click Add External Jars...
