Hi guys...

I hear people talking about caching the db file... what does that exactly mean ? does it mean building a Java model for the file and loading it all in there or what ? what's the difference between caching and not caching ??

Many Thanks in advance

I think those who use caching create a Record instance for each record in the database during the initial file scan. Then records can be modified simultaneously without problems, but you have to update the file periodically.
