Does there exist a library for reading and writing to ini files? It seems like a simple file i/o problem to me but my boss asked me to check if there were pre-existing libraries that handle all the problems I probably haven't thought of yet. :-) I looked on Google but I didn't find much. Thanks for any suggestions. Rebecca
Java is designed to be cross-platform so it doesn't direclty support windows-specific *.ini files. There is java.util.Properties, which provides a convenient interface for persisting information in a name-value format.
