« Posted 2013-08-02 09:42:24 »

I'm new to these forums but I have been working on this project for about two weeks. Its not ready for public release because it is still in VERY heavy development.
Connect will be free but not open source, it is intended for, but not limited to game databases.

RECENT: USER INTERFACE OVERHAUL!

Some Screenshots:

Login screen



Main menu with no database tables



Creating a new database table



What does private do?



What does public do?



Main menu with database table



Database table file (.DBT)



I'd say this is pretty secure



Thanks for taking the time to read this topic, if you have any suggestions feel free to tell me.

Maybe it's for easier use for people who don't know how to work with phpMyAdmin...

I have never worked with SQL, nor I have ever worked with databases, nor I have any (great) experience about web server stuff... you know that stuff with websites and IP and stuff...

But that UI look freakin' cool Smiley

@RobinB
People who just want to set up simple databases for small game servers.
In phpMyAdmin there are many menus and options you dont really need for those purposes...

No, this is a manager, once you get a database host you put your info into the new database box and you will be able to edit the database WITHOUT phpMyAdmin

I have never worked with SQL, nor I have ever worked with databases, nor I have any (great) experience about web server stuff... you know that stuff with websites and IP and stuff...

But that UI look freakin' cool Smiley

Haha thanks, I just started work on a new UI and added a search feature, its going well Smiley

Exactly, and I dont like how phpMyAdmin signs you out after a while, I find my self having to log back in over and over again. This is also a project for fun

I recently just started work with mysql and its pretty easy, I just dont like how complicated phpMyAdmin makes it look

phpMyAdmin makes MySQL look way harder then it actually is, scaring off most indie game developers. Connect will hopefully change that.

Maybe it's for easier use for people who don't know how to work with phpMyAdmin...

Pretty much Smiley

I already have a JDBC connector set up and algorithms to retrieve data from the database and I don't know how it looks funny but thanks for the complement Smiley

If you have a bunch of databases (most people usually won't) but you can search for a database tables name and it will find it

I can honestly see some application here. You shouldn't implement just another basic database manager - what I think would be really cool is if you added things like:

Template\Tools that allow you to easily model a common game server's database designs. Hmm, but to be honest I don't know too much about databases (I know the basics, SQL, I've interfaced with them dozens of times, but I've never actually read a book on how to design proper professional grade databases)

Haha same, to be honest I just started on this project for fun, but now I see that something like this is really needed in the indie game community. I probably will add some templates and a lot of other tools Smiley Right now i'm working on the new user interface and it looks great! Soon everybody will be able to download and use connect alpha Smiley

Looks like a UI designed for tablets and handheld devices. I think you should change some text color to white, because it is very hard to read black text on a dark gray background.

Following your Tumblr so please keep that updated, and I love the UI, great job!

I'm 14 and this stuff is way over my head, how long have you been programming in java? I've been going for about a year now.

Almost 3 years, I started off modding minecraft. (I made really stupid mods) After I got used to java, I started making my own little programs. Most of the UI on connect was designed in photoshop, which I have been using for about 4-5 years. Thanks for the comment Smiley

I probably will make a setting where you can choose between a light and dark theme Smiley

Since the jframe is undecorated and has sharp edges, i just use the print screen button on my keyboard and crop out the background in photoshop Smiley
