    Default How to add a database to my NetBeans Project when making a setup

    I have completed an assignment for my university in which I had to make a Java NetBeans project. My project is now completed but now I have to make a setup of my NetBeans project and give the university the setup file, only.

    My question is, the software I made has a database attached to it, meaning the purpose of the software is to be used with the database. Values must be saved in the database, deleted from the database etc.. I have used MySQL database connections with the JDBC driver

    I have used exe4j to make the .exe file and Setup Factory to make the exe file and setup file respectively. I used these because they were given by my university. If anyone has a better software they think I should use, please tell. Once I make the setup and run the setup, the application works, ON MY COMPUTER. The computer which made the software. But once I take it to a computer in which MySQL was not installed, the setup installed, but the software did not work.

    I am a beginner to Java so it would be appreciated if the solution were explained as simply as possible.

    PS: I understand that to ask a question in this forum, you need to provide blocks of code or my attempts, but I do not understand what I should attach in this case. So it would be appreciated if this question were not removed. If anything should be attached, please let me know and I would attach it in a jiffy.

    I recommend you ask someone at the university for help.
