    How many files does it take to make a very basic java page? Can it be just one file which is run off a hard drive?

    I want to connect to a SQL server and update records only

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    The number of files is not a useful or meaningful measure. What's your real question?

    I want a very clean small GUI that is else contained (not reliant on other files) that will interact with a SQL database.i want it launchable on any web server via a standard hyperlink. Is this possible?

    It depends on how you define "clean" and "small." Since you desire an application that will be launched on "any web server," the application will either be dependent on the server's capability, the client's, OR will have to contain everything it needs to run to provide the functionality you envision. Java has grown into a tool capable of doing what you describe, but there are options, and some options may be better suited to meet your requirements than others, depending on a number of factors.

    I recommend you define your requirements as specifically and thoroughly as you can and then study yourself to find the best tool to deliver what you need. Once you've decided for your own reasons, shop that around to get inputs from others.

    I want the program to pull / update and insert records into a SQL database.

    I want it launchable on any machine and be a single file.

    Where do I start researching on how I build this?

    Start by searching for Java + SQL or JDBC tutorials. Those tutorials may cover deployment or you may have to search for that additional info once you've covered the database basics.
