I have been programming in Java for 2 yrs predominately for web applications. I have the opportunity to develop a desktop application(i.e. Swing). I am planning to use the NetBeans 6 and develop with an embedded data base. I have been reading all the available info on line from NetBeans and Derby but am looking for any other good resources or examples of an application with embedded database using JDBC connection.
In a perfect world I would like my application to be able to talk via JMS to receive updates and send information that needs to be persisted back to the enterprise database.
Any one have any experience with this or suggestions for reading, tutorials or code snippets?
Other than the connection URL, which is covered in detail in the Derby Developer's Guide, using Derby is no different than any other JDBC-enabled database. Using Derby for local application storage doesn't impact other architectural choices, like using JMS for communications. That's a server issue. Are you anticipating some problems you haven't clued us into?
