i am working on a project.. first hands on with java. Its a game that i need to develop. if you have seen the game show "who will be the millionaire"
where we have a host and a guest and a question with three options.
and the guest gets to choose one answer.
now i am thinking of using access to store the questions and answers and use java for all the other stuff... the user interface and stuff
i have no clue on how do i make the connection between access and java to read the records
can u people give me an idea
and also
the user interface is given to me as photoshop image coz the color scheme is diffcult to generate in java. how do i use this image with java objects to make it work?

you mean MS Access? Read up a bit on JDBC then. You can setup the dsn in Control Panel > Data Sources (ODBC) (in w2k, its in Administrative tools). Get back if you dont understand something while setting it up.
