  1. In Topic: Database Design Giant Tables or multiple small Tables

    ... up to at least the 2nd Normal form ...

    Generally you would aim for the 3NF, for the database to be considered properly normalized.

    For the original question: never sacrifice data integrity because you think you're handling too much data. Not until you reach monumental sizes (like Facebook or Twitter!) do you have a somewhat valid excuse to start screwing up the structure to optimize. And even then, you'd be better of storing the bulk of the data in a non-relational database rather than use a screwed up relational schema. (But at that point you'd no doubt have a team of expert DBAs working for you, so they could take care of all that.)

    If you're going to use a relational database, do it right, or don't do it at all.

    When you're talking about data volume in a database, it's more logical to talk in terms of storage space and bandwidth, rather than number of records kept. The number of tables/rows/columns doesn't make much of a difference, only how much space the data occupies, and how much traffic is being handled.
  2. In Topic: window.location.href

    Posted 4 Oct 2015

    If you need two values in the query string, just add them one after the other.

    See details here.
    (Or just Google something like: "URL query string". There are articles about this all over the place.)
  3. In Topic: window.location.href

    Posted 4 Oct 2015

    Hey. I don't see you use the "case_no" parameter anywhere in that code. Your location.href line is redirecting to the "comreply_id" parameter.
  4. In Topic: New to java how to involve a database ?

    Posted 4 Oct 2015

    The answer to that depends a lot on how you want to store the data. Are you planing to have an actual database server, or would storing the data on the user's hard-drive suffice?

    JDBC is the back-bone for a lot of database interaction in Java. It can connect you to any number of different platforms, from file-based systems like SQLite, to actual databases servers like MySQL or Oracle. I'd start by studying that.
  5. In Topic: what's wrong? i can't run any php file

    Posted 4 Oct 2015

    How are you trying to "run" the files?

    PHP is (usually) a server-side language, run through a HTTP server. If you simply open the ".php" files from your file-system, they won't run.

    I can't seem to like your reply to my jQuery post an hour ago (fantastic explanation it was), because the Javascript in my browser is somewhat malfunctioning. I will like it later, ok?
