Syncing with a DB

Posted 01 June 2012 - 08:04 AM

Hi. I'm making an application and I would like to be able to locally store data for offline use so people don't have to have an internet connection in order to use the program.

My DB is in Oracle and is located on a server at campus. What would be the best way to store the users data? Also would it be possible to only sync the changes the user makes to their data once they have an internet connection? I'm familiar with using serializable files within Java, perhaps this would be a way of saving data?

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Oracle, as you know, is fully Java interfaced, so you can probably use Oracle's own synch techniques. Maybe something like

That's an awful lot of information. I'm quite new to Java and Programming so it is very difficult to grasp this. Is there any simpler methods or is there any examples of this in work that I could follow? Thanks.

Not really. Synching data snapshots with a db is not a simple issue. You might get it to look a little simpler if you implemented it yourself but then it probably wouldn't work properly
