We've just been given our final project for my java programming class. Its a follow up class to a c++ programming class so we've just started programming in java about 3 months ago. We're not too advanced. Anyways here's the program we're supposed to make:

Create a GUI app using swing. It should show you a bunch of student information that is supplied to the program from a database using MS Access. While the user is viewing this info from your java program they can edit and save the information. Use some kind of middleware to do this (JDBC, ODBC, etc.)

The problem i'm having with this program is the whole editing of information from a ms access file (middleware part). I'm having no problem creating the GUI. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

take a look at the jdbc:odbc driver (java.sql.*)

This will take care of your connection to any database you'd like that has jdbc support.
