The beauty about embedded java DB is that its very small in size (around 2mb) and packs quite a punch. It supports a multitude of SQL operations and is a perfect fit for small applications like these(the address-book).
Purpose Of The Application:
I made this application because it was a task put forth by a particular company for candidates who wished to pursue their career with that company.
Primarily the purpose of this application was to make use of different technologies like java swing, java embedded DB , SQL and incorporate them in one single stand alone application.
