comment What constitutes a good Database System(Java / SQL related)
No idea what the Psychology Dept. is doing with these data, but make sure there aren't security issues due to patient/subject information. This is not a good project for a first time developer (no offense to your skills) and could literally be messing with people's lives.

comment How should I remember what I was doing and why on a project 3 months back?
Stakeholders assume they're paying a professional developer who is commenting & documenting code so he (at a later time) or someone else (at any time) can take over the project. Of course their assumption is wrong most of the time.

comment Word for author, of an add, edit, or delete?
Having some of this occur in your app code and some in the database is more confusing than what you're naming the fields.

comment Should I leave my job and self learn for a few months?
If you want a better job, you're going to have to prove you can work full-time and learn new things. School days are over and there are no summers off. Show you have the horsepower to learn on the job, at nights, weekends, etc.

comment How should I remember what I was doing and why on a project 3 months back?
Doesn't this really depend on how you were tracking the project in the first place? Should we assume you were doing everything from memory and no other documentation?

comment Reporting Logic vs Domain Logic
I guess what I mean is, if you had a data entry form that required some business logic to display a calculated value (concat(FName, LName)) even if this was the only place where that logic was needed, how would that be treated in your application?

comment Why shouldn't you develop on production database?
Why do you have to develop on the production database? Can't you restore a backup somewhere else and connect to that?
