This project meets all of the requires and uses a Microsoft Access database.
I have tested all of it and it all works. It is using a local Microsoft Access file. All you need to do is import the Zip into NetBeans, open the index.jsp file, and press Play to run the project in Glassfish.
The database already contains some data. You can log in with:
While the application could certainly be expanded to include other features, such as reply to, I focused on getting all of the requirements finished and a couple of the Task 7 options (subject and sent items).
If you have any trouble running it, just let me know. I designed it specifically so that it would be very easy for you to run and you do not have to do a bunch of work to get it to run.
There is one issue you might run into, but it isn't an issue with this project. It is an issue with running 64b NetBeans while attempting to connect to a Microsoft Access file.
The Microsoft Access connection must be 32bit. So if you are using 64bit NetBeans, you may get a big error in Glassfish about not being able to find datasource name -- and nothing will work.
Access will not work with 64bit application development, so if your run into that error, you will have to change to 32bit.
To do that, quit out of NetBeans and edit the conf file for NetBeans. This is found in the installation folder for netbeans (usually in Program Files), in the etc folder.
Once you get into Program Files/NetBeans 7.x/etc/
You will find a file called netbeans.conf
Open it in WordPad. You may have to open WordPad as administrator in order to edit this fie.
In the file, you may see a line that is something like:netbeans_jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_13"
This i a line pointing to a 64bit JDK (If you are running a 64bit operating system). In order to work with Access, you need to use a 32bit JDK. So, first you need to make certain that you have a 32bit JDK installed. Look in Program Files (x86) and look for a java folder. See if you have a jdk installed there. If not, google for JDK and download and install the latest 32bit version. You will then modify the file to point to:netbeans_jdkhome="C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_13"
Of course, that version number on the string I am giving you is just an example. You want to point to a folder that actually exists on your computer. So your's might not be 1.7.0_13
In any case, if you are already using a 32bit NetBeans and JDK, you won't run into this issue at all.
Again, the project meets all of the requirements quite nicely. I really hope you enjoy it. I have been working on it the entire time.
Let me know if you have any questions. I'm here to help!
