I am just a starter. The question might sound very stupid to some of you but I appreciate if somebody answers me.

I downloaded B&S. Having problem in reading database file.

Do I have to use ODBC:JDBC to read this file or some RandomAccessFile method(which I am not really aware of).

I know it is a forum of extreamly expereienced professionals but I'll do work hard and come to a point where I'll be suggesting to others.

Any help is appreciated

Hi,
You should use RandomAccessFile for accessing the file . JDBC is for connecting to real databases management systems (like Oracle, Postgresql) . See JBDC_Wiki
for JDBC API description.
Greetings,
Liviu

If you are doing the SCJD assignment, to get a better idea of what the project is, I recommend the "SCJD Exam with J2SE5" book. It is a short book, and direct to the point. I am sure it will help you about any topic you have.

The book explains in details how to use the random access objects to access a file, and implements an example database.

The second tool is this forum. As you could see, your first question was asked quicly.

Good look,
Marcelo.

Perhaps you should post the output of your program, rather than your code. Why are you skipping 8 bytes at the start of your file?

And please use tags around properly formatted code.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
