In Bodgit and Scraper I am reading .db file using RandomAccessFile but in Sun instruction is written "All numeric values are stored in the header information use the formats of the DataInputStream and DataOutputStream classes. All text values, and all fields (which are text only), contain only 8 bit characters, null terminated if less than the maximum length for the field. The character encoding is 8 bit US ASCII. "
Q.1 is it okay to use RandomAccessFile or should I go with DataInputStream to read the file ???
Q.2 What is meaning of this "1 byte "deleted" flag. 0 implies valid record, 1 implies deleted record "
