    Okay, I want to create a sort of "Bank" GUI where you can store money, as if you don't store your money and die then it's going to remove all of your money. Anyway, this needs to be able to save to, I'm guessing, a database? What's the best method in your opinion of doing this? Thanks!

    Well there are many ways of doing this. There are a few questions that you have to ask yourself:
    Does it have to be fast?
    Does it have to be persistent?
    Does it have to be easy to setup?

    I would store it in a hashmap. Then when the server stops save the data to a yml file.

    Hashmap sounds fun, I'll look into that haha.
    I guess it needs to be fast, persistent and pretty easy

    RossCoombs Yeah either you use a HashMap or your own class which contains the name of bank account owner and the balance for the non-persistent storage. And for the persistent storage I'd take a flatfile or MySQL.
