CIT 597 Assignment 9: Using JDBC
Fall 2005, David Matuszek

Purpose of this assignment:

General idea of the assignment:

Create a database of courses you have taken and/or would like to take. Use a Java GUI to add courses and SELECT information from the database.

Go to and download Connector/J. Unzip it. Put the .jar file somewhere Java can find it (In Eclipse: Project --> Properties --> Java Build Path --> Libraries --> Add External Jars...).

Write a program with a GUI that will allow me to:


For full credit, you do not need to write a beautiful, useful program. Your goal should be to demonstrate that you can create, update, and access a database from Java using JDBC. Think of this as the "Hello World" of JDBC programming.

Due date:

Thursday, December 8, before midnight.
