Hi everyone...I'm working on a project and I need some advice.
My project is going to be an online (client/server) appointment scheduling system. I'm writing it in Java and running a MySQL database underneath it. I'm using Connector J, which is a JDBC driver, to connect my Java application to the MySQL database.
Here's where I need advice. I want my Java application to send meeting request notifications and confirmations to meeting attendees through email. How do I go about in doing that? Is there some kind of special email API out there that would allow me to do that? If so, please direct me to a good source.
Another question...Can my application act as a client for 2 or more different servers at the same time? EX: Be connected to the MySQL database and act as a Chat Client at the same time? If so, please direct me to a good example source.
Thanks...I'm still a beginner in programming and I appreciate all of your help and advice
