This is where I am going with all of this plus learning java along the way.
The sqlPokerInsert project obtains the user's input for the postgresql venue_visits database visits table values. The program then verifies that the user's inputs are valid. Upon verification, the user's inputs are inserted into the venue_visits database visits table.
The user is queried for the input with a default answer submitted by the sqlPokerInsert program. The program obtains the default answer from the config.properties file. The program obtains the sql database acceptable values from the postgresql venue_visits database tables as listed below.
cities, games, hi_lo, kills, stakes, states, v_limits, and venues.
Upon the user's values being valid, the valid entries are inserted into the venue_visits database visits table.
Just for clarity below are the venue_visits fourteen entries.
I am forcing the date and time entries into an integer by checking that the date and time are in the following formats.
Time: 1000 or 1800 or 2400 or 0200
Date: 20180213 or 20180112 or 19890811
The poker visits information I have goes back to 1989. I actually played my first $1/$5 seven-stud game at Binion's in 1968. Two striper in the USAF and part-time dining hall work at Vandenberg and saved up a whoping $60 for the game. Lost it all that night in Las Vegas and had to return to Vandyland on what I had left. It was surprising what you could do on couple of bucks and a Trailways bus.
