    Default Project Idea / verification

    Hello all,

    I've seen a few posts people asking about projects within here so i'm hoping it's the correct place to see if what I'm thinking is a plausable idea or not.

    My project aim over the summer develop a tool I can use to help the company I've been working on placement at. It's essentially a monitoring tool driven from a postgresql database that's being constantly updated or 'live' as it was.

    Project I need to create live/ weekly/ monthly/ yearly views/charts of the postgresql information over a web browser where a user can log-in and out essentially. Also possible a little interface on the web application that searches a query for details like username for example.


    so what I've been thinking. open to corrections or suggestions by all means.

    • Through use of netbeans make a web application
    • connected to a postgresql database
    • secure log in and out of the website hosting the web app, website using html
    • import the use of something like highcharts to jquery my database to produce charts
    • add little tools like the lookup's aswell.


    would I be able to do this through java, also what server would be best to this to to run a localhost essentially for people to log in to.

    please if this email is in the wrong section just delete it but I'm just looking for any pointers for a best practice what i could do here.

    Thanks
    Z

    Sounds possible, however the login/logout would have to be done in a programming language, rather than a markup (HTML) language. It's possible to do the entire website via Java, or you can use a different language for the required parts and use a Java applet to display the charts.

    Other than that, you would need to be more specific; websites tend to lean towards speed so that might be a consideration through the design process. Although you should avoid premature optimization, but (from the same website) Design for Performance could be something to think about.

    Sounds like what you're looking for is jsp.

    Why require netbeans from the get-go? the IDE at best doesn't matter, and at worst you're cutting yourself off from the awesome Amazon Web Service tools eclipse has.

    I say netbeans from the get-go at the moment due to the software available in the current environment. If it would be a case developing in eclipse, releasing it and not needing to go back into it for a while that would be great. I'll look into those services now mentioned. ok i was more incline towards html for websites as I was more familiar but if the whole thing is created in java then using the java applet for charts, seem's more of a consistant layout then matching thing's here there and everywhere.
    thanks for the input so far, really appreciated

    I've gone away and was wondering how I could do this, or whether they would all work together.
    Netbeans to create a web application with jquery use
    postgresql database is read from the web application
    I use highcharts through jquery to produce my charts from the postgresql database
    all this running on the glassfish server?

    thats what im thinking, but I'm confused to where I would put each thing or if using all those together combined is possible at all?
    any input to how I can get them working together would be appreciated
