Hi all,
Happy New Year.
I have written the DB section that opens the file on start up but does not actually close it. I am relaying on the virtual machine to close the file when the application finishes.
Am I likely to lose marks for not closing the file?
Thanks
Chris.

I would think that you ought to at least make sure that you don't lose any info when the application is switched off and back on again (in a controlled manner). That would be my minimum requirement.

Would it be safe to create a shutdown hook that closes the file when the application termiantes. Or would it just be better to close the file after each read and write?
Thanks
Chris.
