I'm currently developing a gym membership system for my aunt. I'm using Java and mySQL as the database. I'm getting fairly close to finishing it all I need to do is add a few analytical abilities to it and get it to interact with a barcode scanner(that could be very tricky).
But one thing I'm wondering now is how will I set up the database on their computer? Will I have to actually download mySQL and set up the tables etc? I've only done brief searches and what I've come across a few suggestions such as using IzPack or HSQLDB but I'm not really too sure about these (anyone used them?).
I was hoping anyone who has had experience in doing something similar could point me in the right direction.
