This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Where should I keep my user names and passwords? This is for an application that will not be connected to a server. I convert my passwords using the message digest. I would like to place them into a database, and the only one I have is Access. Can java open an MS Access database without Access being installed on the user's computer? The user will have to log in to my program with a password. I'm trying to figure out where the best place is to place the username and password. I thought I could place it into an Access database and then include that with the program when I distribute it. I didn't think a text file would be the best place for username and passwords. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks [ February 11, 2002: Message edited by: Matthew Roth ]
