I posted here around 6 months ago and was helped greatly by the people here with making my first Java application - an EVE one. Now I'd like to share it with a few friends but I'm not so sure how I distribute the database - or package a quiet installer in with the application. Specifically with MSSQL how do other people do this with their applications?

Thanks, Lienzi.

Other people (especially in Java development) try to be independent of particular database vendor (especially of M$). There are lots of lightweight databases around.

try to use something that is in general available and perhaps even used by other 3rd party apps.
like sqlite.

so your users can update from the regular data dump without having to wait for you to press buttons.
just consider people might want to use your app well after you stopped being interested in eve.

you can use eve asset manager with the sqlite dump from the sticky thread just fine, without the EAM guy having to be involved or still active.

what else?
keep ccp-static-data and your-app-dynamic-data separate.
do not use a custom data model for the ccp data.

that is?
