am afraid i am quite new in the world of programming...well the problem stands like this..
i have to implement through JDBC a nework search , get some documents back, parse them and store the information into a local database.
My question is, that in order to populate the local database do you need to make a master temporary table or a view and then populate your local database. Do you have to use the 'merge' command to ensure no data duplication and data overwrite?
