not sure how to go about it

Hi everyone,

i was recently approached and asked if i'd be willing to work on a side project with some friends. We'd be developing a program that would be able to accept input from the user to store data as user profiles, including profile pictures, name, date of birth, hair color, weight, etc, etc. When a user searches for profiles containing certain specific fields like all males with brown hair, for example, the matching profiles would be returned as a list for the user to browse.

This is not a web based application, the idea is for the program to be run from the user's local machine and an internet connection is not required or needed for this idea; a GUI is needed as well...

my question is, what programming languages would be best for this type of application? i'm an intermediate java developer and i am also familiar with Perl and Ruby. Any suggestions or any information pointing me in the right direction would be very much appreciated :)

thanks!

Since your familiar with JAVA a bit... And although its not so complicated application..

You can build the application in Java using Swing as GUI Pattern..
Backend as SQL Server..
Also you can give the user a fancy UI by using Java2D

Thanks for the reply :) i've spoken to some other people and they pretty much suggested that your suggestion would be the easiest solution hence i will be looking into it. I am taking a database course in a few weeks so that will definitely help.
Thank you again!
