Hi Ignas,

What type of application is this?
Would it run as a web service?
How do other applications use it?
What does it have to do with JDBC?

well basically I need it to work as a database of sort where I could change it's certain information through another java application. Is that possible? not sure if it's a web service since I'm not really aware of what web service does.

Does this help:
Lesson: All About Sockets?
This learning trail shows you how to write an application that runs on a server, and that can be called from a client.

There are loads of other options to do this.
We have forums for "Distributed Java", "Web Services", "EJB and Other Java EE Technologies", "Sockets and Internet Protocols", and what have you. So many choices...

thanks I will look into this. I have also started reading about web services and downloaded eclipse, I suppose it will take a while for me to get a grip on this.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
