    Post Simple Data Base.

    Use as you will a simple data base that uses a Jlist.
    This can be used for an update console on games.
    Or however you want.
    Took about 1 hour.
    I plan to make it when you press enter to add to data base using a keylistener.
    Source: DataBaseedit3.rar
    .jar: DataBaseedit3.jar


    **Fixed the problem where if nothing is selected it gives errors in console when you press remove! New link above.
    **Added editing. Pic soon.

    Hmm, no comments. If you download please comment. I've stripped this source and made it into a simple game as an announcement console. Just by using the list and a little bit of code from the buttons. Might put a pic up. Commenttssss.

    What is a simple database?
    Does it have rows and columns and selectable fields?

    What OS does a .rar file come from? Why isn't the app in a .jar file?

    A database that has 3 functions(so far), add data, remove data, and clear all data.
    I plan to make it export a list and import lists.
    Also make it have titles and names and such.
    Suggestions are welcome.
    It has selectable rows.
    .rar is like a .zip when is basically a file that holds files or folders.
    It is not a jar because it is the source not just the program.
    All my stuff I release is open source if permitted.

    How does that differ from a text editor?

    I can't open a .rar on WinXP
    you can put any file, including source in a jar file.

    No it uses a Jlist, Very different from any text editor.
    Nd yes you can with winrar.
    Nd no you can't not a netbeans source which is an ide for java.
    I'll upload the latest edits into a jar file for people not wanting to look at the source.

    Yes you can put any file in a jar file. I have no idea what your IDE is capable of, but I can put any file in a jar file.

    Umm, why though? A .rar file is used EVERYWHERE. So much easier. But anyways making the app into a jar file right now.

    Lol linux? Uhh, it was made on windows xp. All you need is winrar. It's just an improved version of a .zip file. Better compression and shit.

    Made this a little more advanced.
    Still a simple database.
    Even if I add importing and exporting that would still only be a complex database.
    Anyways added editing.
    Took a while but this is turning out good and can really be good for other things if stripped like a notepad on an adventure the character could keep a notebook or a quest-book.
    Nimbus look now.
    Makes it look more, databasey.
    Lmfao.

    .rar is kind of "un-common" in the java world (not unused, just uncommon) most people use .zip (because of the native windows support), .jar (because of the native Java support and potential to pack a program/source into one file), or tar balls (the most common format used with linux systems). I have no idea what the most common format for macs it, but I'm assuming tar balls because mac's architecture shares some resemblance of unix systems, and thus linux systems (don't take my word for this, I don't use a mac regularly but have had to fumble my way through them sometimes).

    Unfortunately, WinRar is not a publicly available program (proprietary program you have to pay for). I have 7zip, and it does support .rar files. In the future, perhaps you could upload a zip file instead? I think it's the most commonly supported across multiple platforms.

    Okay thank you. In the other forums I am apart of winrar is more widely used.
