Which part are you having problems - using a timer task, using JDBC, the SQL code for this, or something else? What do you have so far, and where are you stuck making progress?

Hi sujendra,

I have never heard of an age column in database, this is the first time! It is either a poor database design or I am missing something.
Anyway I would recommend you to consider your design. Just have the date of birth column instead of age. Or should you please inform about your age column and purpose, since I am curious about it.


I agree. Here's the link:
