This week's book giveaway is in the Java 9 forum. We're giving away four copies of Java 9 Modularity: Patterns and Practices for Developing Maintainable Applications and have Sander Mak & Paul Bakker on-line! See this thread for details.
Are there any freeware or open source MS Access text import wizard style java components out there? I am building a utility that will allow users to convert flat-file text output from database pulls/reports to database columns. Data columns are visually apparent, but output is variable enough that character seperation filters won't always work. Also there are divider records (divides output by day or hour) that must be culled out. The MS Access text import wizard has the basic functionality and look-n-feel I'm going for. I'd like to avoid reinventing something that already exists.
