JBible - A Java based Bible Application

Well... It was one hell of a week for me and I needed something to remind me how fun programming is. Or used to be hehehe.

This was supposed to be an entry to Keith's contest, I unfortunately fell ill a few days before the deadline and wasn't able to continue with it. I had the change to continue working with it so rather than playing video games, I sitted and turned on my computer, and started coding. I tried to stick to my original concept eventhough I've already seen other people's submission (or screenshots).

Aside from my first statement, basically the motivation to continue with this app are the following:

1. Spread the Gospel

2. Utilize Netbean's Swing Editor, I had a lot of fun using it. I had no prior professional experience with Swing so netbeans really made up for that shortcoming.

3. Demonstrate to young and starting Java developers how a database driven Swing app might be built using Java. This is actually also my first database driven Swing application.

You can open the source in Netbeans 6.1, you need JDK 1.6 installed.

God Bless! ;)

 

UPDATE 11/03/2008: I just included an executable jar in the zip file.

You also need to place your database in C:\BibleDB\BibleDB.mdb

Enjoy!
