I am trying to create a Java based quiz game on Netbeans IDE. What I've been trying to do is to have questions and answers in a database, draw information from there whenever it's required and print the questions/answers in labels in a jFrame. Now, I've tried it with the local MySQL Server and it's working fine. However, to distribute this application, I need to have an embedded DB.
I would be highly grateful if someone could give me a step by step guide or point me to a detailed tutorial on how exactly I should do that (all the tutorials I've encountered have been for CRUD Desktop Applications...not useful for me). I would request you all not give me vague replies (like just use Java Derby!! duh!!). I'm kinda a newbie so specifics would be great like what files to import in the library and everything. I have The Netbeans 7.0 ALL BUNDLE and standard JDK. I would also be very very grateful if the instructions were very basic - like -
1. Start with opening the services tab in Tools.
I am new to JDBC and this forum so please forgive me if I haven't adhered to certain forum protocols.
