Dear all members,
Normally we get data/value from database by writting a sql statement, right? How about without writing the sql statement, can i get the data?
For an example, when i run the application a JFrame with the JTable will popup if the database date equal current date...
Without using sql statement which means using DB.FIELD but there were errors when compiling...why?
Any code can show to mehow to apply without sql queries?
THANK YOU SO MUCH.....

SQL is the Query Language of each modern relational database.
There are certain technologies/frameworks like JDO, iBatis, Hibernate
to wrap the SQL statements and make the handling object oriented. But basiclly every database access is done with SQL. There is no other way to access the db except to read the data files.
