Hiya, I'm currently helping make a RPG game and I was thinking that to make editing character stats easy for the other people working on it. That instead of loading the data from a text file, that I use the JDBC to have it load from a access file. I already know the basic's of JDBC, but the step that I have been given where you go into ODBC Data Source Administrator and set that all up is a bit much for the average user. Plus it seems to take from the ability of non windows users, to run the program. My question then I guess is there a way to get around this 'step'? Something to hide it from the users.

You should use an in memory database that stores to a file. For example hsqldb. That way you distribute your code with the library, no need for installs.
