Hello Everyone:
Just want to ask how easy would it be to build a quiz in Java.
I have not use Java for a few months (5).
Quiz would need the following:
1. T or F and mulitiple question, possible write the answer
2. Client must register and sign in to take the test/quiz (db is needed)
3. Quiz gives final results of the test: How many they got right, pass or fail
4. DB holds results of the tests.
5. Must be able to take the quiz on-line ie the website.

thanks
nomad
PS I'm still a beginner and I will need all the help to do this.

How easy this project would be to do depends on how much you already know.

1. Have you written web applications before?
2. Have you written code that interacts with a database before?
3. What parts of Java do you know well?
4. What frameworks do you know well?

1. Have you written web applications before? NO
2. Have you written code that interacts with a database before? Yes but in another lang.
3. What parts of Java do you know well? I'm about equal in all areas as a beginner/interm level
4. What frameworks do you know well?
knowledge of Check Boxes, Radio Buttons, labels, text fields, and combp boxes.

I will be rusty on all above.
Wonder if Flash would be better?

Nope; you're dealing with JDBC, Servlets, Servlet containers, JSPs, a whole lot
of frameworks that each tell you they're best, quite a few patterns to handle it all,
a bunch of idiocyncracies of all of the above, no matter what technology you want
to apply here; there is no free lunch and knowing (a bit) of what you know, I'd say:
stay away from it for now and dig into one of the technologies at a time. Maybe
you can start with JDBC and work your way up from there.

kind regards,

Take my little advice: dig in one of the technologies you need for your entire project.
The JDBC package is a fine one to start with. That'd be much better than the
alternative where you try to apply and use all of them at once; you'd get stuck on
the surface of each one of them.

kind regards,

Jos
