I am developing a stand-alone PC-based asset management app for a small theater to help manage their costume inventory. I am considering Java - for flexibility and ability to transition to a web-based architecture if needs be - and VB - for simplicity and ease of maintenance. Somebody told me to look at FileMaker. Another told me to look at WASP Technologies for a prebuilt bar code app that might fit - which would of course shorten the development time (;-). Any suggestions or comments?

Perhaps some more detail about what you wish the program to do would help. I would think, without understanding the requirements, that either a simple spreadsheet or MS Access would do the job and would be more familiar to any potential user.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Filemaker or Access will probably be your best choice. There are tons of resources on the net for both.
