Somebody asked me to create an off-line database with a searchengine. It needs multiple search values.
For example:
-color:green
-tail: yes
-weight: 2 pounds
--------
3 matches: lizard, tailfrog, babydragon
see?
This is the idea. Should i use java for such an apllication?
I just need help.

matzeflapse,
I am moving this post to the Java in General Intermediate forum because your question is not really related to applets and I think you might get a better response there.
Also, please be sure to register with a proper name. "matzeflapse" does not follow the conventions. For more information, see here: http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp .
If you do not use a name which follows the conventions, your account will be disabled. I value your posts and I would hate to see that happen.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Stephanie

i don't see no reason why you cannot. The thing you have to take into consideration is if there is going to be logic in the searches, if ther are just keyword matches and/or partial keyword matches you can simply use a tool like Developer 2000, which should be a lot simpler.
