I do not have this specific book, but I have read some of the head first books and they are very easy to learn from.

the only problem I have with the PSP is the UMD disks that sony developed, they are supposed to have relatively poor load times. Also spinning a disk takes up a lot of power that would be salvaged with a cartidge based system.

I will be getting one in January, so I will keep you all posted on how it is.

Sorry I forgot about this thread!

The review is in the message boards, I will put a direct link at the bottom! As for the backwards compatibility, YES it will play the GBA games, but not the older gameboy games. Since the DS games are in a completely different style cartridge (actually card) they had to build in a port specifically for the gba games.

yes, prepared statements make life a breeze! Special characters will never give you any problems, they put less strain on the DB, they are just altogether a wonderful thing!
no problem, glad I could help! I remember when I was just getting started and that site was a huge help! If you need any more help, feel free to let me know, I would be more than happy to lend a hand.

you still need some sort of an ID for the row ex

id name age gpa
1 dan 23 3.0
2 dan 20 2.8
3 mike 21 3.3

then if you want to update you do it like this

update table set name=dan, age=23, gpa=3.1 where id = 2;

if you did it like this

update table set name=dan, age=23, gpa=3.1 where name = dan;
it would change all data where the name is dan, this would create bad data.

you can set up the id field using a sequence (in oracle) or an auto-increment in mysql

no offence at all, but it seems you are pretty new to databases and sql, might i suggest a GREAT site to get you started. and after you get through that

these helped me when I was just starting out, they let you build a database on there server as you are going thorough the course. Best part is that you never have to leave the page!

if you use and the result set is null, you will probably need to use a do while instead of just a while for the loop... never had a problem myself though, maybe if we had some more info on your specific problem.
Are you trying to run a procedure?

hope this helps!

this is probably the best place to get started on your journey, this handles the basics of programming for the j2me platform.

I think he was looking for a resource that someone used that helped them out, one that is known to be a quality resource.
Sure I'll post my code!

Page one needs to create the checkboxes (all the same name)

Page two then needs to place them in a string;

you can then use the string in your sql statement

this should work with prepared statements OR regular statements, all I tested was prepared.

I hope this helps somebody!

PS thanks for the efforts Srini, but we had that part, we actually needed the question to the answer! Think 42!
