    Default Someone needs to explain to me like I'm a kid. (Java database and Forms)

    This is driving me insane.

    I have created a simple database table using the Netbeans Database service. Its the usual - Employee workers table - FIRST_NAME, SECOND_NAME, AGE, JOB_TITLE, SALARY... etc etc.

    I have used SQL commands to gather certain data from the table, E.g. select * from FAZRAZ.WORKERS where SALARY < 30000.....

    So separately, I have used the Netbeans design view feature to create and design a JApplet form.

    I'm probably going about this completely wrong but how the ******************* do I get the data from the database table I made into that damn form.

    Thanks for any help. I'm a complete beginner.

    Hi, please post the code you are having problems with, explain what the code does, and what it should do.
    Right now the implied question says "give me working code" which we do not do. Please include your question with the code and we will be happy to assist you in writing your own code.

    I agree with jps. It also sounds to me like you've created a user interface using Netbeans' GUI Builder, and you don't know what to do with it, how to make it useful. That's a common place to be. The GUI Builder makes creating a decent user interface "easy," but making the interface useful is often more about knowing how to use Netbeans than knowing how to program in Java. Even if I outlined the steps in Java to display db data in the interface, I'm assuming it wouldn't help you, because you don't know Java. And I know Java, but I don't know Netbeans.

    If you want to stay on your current path, then find the Netbeans tutorials that show how to do what you need to do or join a Netbeans forum and ask there. There's an IDE area here on JPF you might try. If you would rather learn to code Java GUIs by hand, then leave the GUI Builder for now and start working the Swing tutorials. Actually, that link may be a good start for either approach, depending on how you execute the lessons there. Even if you decide the GUI Builder is the way to go, knowing how to program some Swing by hand will be very useful.

    Good luck!
