guys, I think my assignment files are missing something!

I got the instructions, and a binary .db file, and that's it. How do I read in the binary file? people are talking about something called a Data class that should be included with the Assignment that I don't have!!! or how do I read in the data from my .db file when it's in binary format!

Thanks!

That is all you need. In the instructions you have a DBMain interface that your Data class should implement. The Data class is something you have to implement all by yourself.

So in my implementation, I have to write some code that reads in binary and converts it to ASCII, and writes my ASCII to the db after converting it to Binary?? :-S is that what ure saying?

Exactly! You should imlement a Data class that implements the DBMain interface and then you should implement a client/server solution to access the Database both in standalone mode and network mode. Good luck!
