So I did a search on the forums to try and find specific answers to my questions, but haven't been able to. I would appreciate any help I can get with Below is the summary of the project I am faced with for University: Aim: The aim of the project is to design and implement a web site to facilitate sharing the sort of stories that people have when they have been travelling. Visitors to the website will be able to search the storybase, add their own stories and comment on existing stories. Basic tasks: * design and implement an underlying database to store the stories and user details. * design and implement the web interface which allows stories to be submitted for moderation. * link the website and database. * provide the means for successfully moderated stories to be entered into the database and therefore be available on the website * allow users to search for stories using keywords. I have a MacBook running on Leopard and a Dell Laptop running on XP, so platform is not a problem. I would like to know what would be the simplest & easiest way to implement the above requirements? My friend has suggested I use Oracle & Developer Tools. Is it infact the best solution? Do pardon my ignorance here, but I would appreciate any information on: 1.) the best set of tools/applications to use for my project? 2.) any guides, tutorials, step by step instructions on how to proceed? I have some basic knowledge of HTML & SQL queries. Thanks.
