Which java technology too use?  
Jul 1, 2004 9:09 AM



 
Hi everyone

I'm new to JAVA and My assignment is to create a WYSIWYG editor to create a web page that runs within a web browser/web page. It must be possible to open up additional 'windows' to insert grpahics to the page being created. My problem is that I'm not sure which Java technology to use to do this JSP or multiple applets.

The editor has to save it's content to a database - I'll probably use Mysql for that, so it looks like I'll be using JDBC too?

I suppose it's possible that I should use JSP, applets and JDBC. Is that the best option?

My tutor has said that the web page must also have 'additional features' running along side the editor - which she currently says to be a scrolling digital clock and a menu system to link to other pages.

Does anyone have an opinion on which would be best? any help would be appreciated .

thanks
Lex

I have found, on many occasions, that what is best, must be determined by the one who is going to program the application.

In other words... What path do you see grasshopper?

Keep in mind that with JSP, your only user-interface options are those supplied by HTML. At the moment I don't see how you would make a WYSIWYG editor using HTML, so probably an applet is your best bet. I think the requirement that it run in a web browser is stupid, but hey - stupid homework assignments are what college is all about.

Try Java Studio Creator: www.sun.com/jscreator.
It is based on JSP/JSF/JDBC/...

Hi Nasch_

i have some friends who have used javascript to do it - it seems to work ok but I thought java would be more scalable - I have a feeling this assignment will grow!

Thanks
