Database manpulation without connecting to a server...

78 New Member
Hi guys. I'm completely new to databases, so i wanna ask you if this is achievable.

I've been learning how to connect to an MS SQL database file with java. I've finally learned the basics, connecting and manipulating... but here's what i wanna do. I don't want to connect to a server to change the database content. I want to have the database file inside the application folder and manipulate it directly from there, without logging on to some server. I want to carry the application with me to any computer and be able to use the database file without connecting to a server.

Is this possible? If so, how?

Thanks.

You can use the MS-Access as your database. You can carry this database with your computer anywhere. Also, If you don't want to connect to the database at all, you need to design a robust front end which does all the database chagnes behind.

Well, i guess not connecting is out of the question...

So if i use MS Access, the computer i run the application on must have MS Access then?

Not necessarry.

If you are concerned with that, use XML as your database.

Hi all, I would like to ask for some help regarding separating the asp.net webserver and the sql server. I have created an asp.net application for a certain company. Initially, we installed both the iis and sql server in a single machine. Not too long ago, the machine had some hardware problems, and management has decided to purchase new servers, for both asp.net and sql server.

Hi, We have developed an ASP.NET web application and are planning to host it in an external Server, which provides us a good bandwidht. We need to put he web application outside because the bandwidtht that we have in our local office won't be enough for the number of users that access to our web app. But for backup issues, the database server will be in our local office.

Hi, we are thinking of installing sql server as a backend to our website. Q.1. What is the best way to do this - should we host the database on the same IIS server where the website is hosted, or would it be better to put the database on a server on it's own, separate from the IIS server? Q.2. Also what is the best way for clients to connect to the database for querying purposes - will I be able to install client versions of
