The document from the Sun for the SCJD says that the Data Conversion Tool may be used for other projects in the future. Keeping in this mind,Should I build this tool in a way that apart from creating a database,I should provide capabilities to add,modify,delete a record & also to query the database. Is this needed? Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. poornima.

My instructions seemed quite clear; the Data Conversion Tool has a single purpose: to create a binary database file (using Data Class) from a plain ASCII text file. I think what they are trying to encourage you to do is to NOT hardcode anything (i.e. field names, field positions, field sizes, delimiters, file names and locatiions, etc...). In this way, you should be able to create a simple tool which can be used to create the database needed for your FBN client and server, AND to create a non-FBN database which might be used for another project.
