Subject How would you implement a record-level versioning system with Derby and Java?
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2009 13:03:04 GMT
Hi Guys,
I'm completely new to Derby and I evaluating it as a possibile embedded
RDBMS for a Java/Swing application that I'm goig to develop. I'm
currently following the tutorials at IBM DeveloperWorks
(http://tinyurl.com/6mlwpj) and I have ordered the IBM book at Amazon's
already (http://tinyurl.com/ln3cas).

I have a stimulating question for you all (I apologize if this topic has
been discussed already):

how would you implement a system to keep track of any old version of a
record (row) of your database?

I'm asking this because I need a system that will allow the user to see
any old version of a record and to undo/redo any change with just a
couple of mouse clicks.

Any idea? Any suggestion?

PS: No, I'm not planning to use any kind of ORM (Hibernate or similar).
Should I?
