So,I have succesfully completed two java courses at my uni but I feel there's something missing mostly from the I/O section. The thing is that as known the I/O API is huge, and this is both handy and confusing for begginers. So, If someone asked me to develop a java program with I/O I would search the internet for similar programs and follow some relative path.The next time someone would ask for a program I would probably use a completely different and random set of I/O classes even for the same implementation.My concern is tha something like this is completely unprofessional,I know it has to do with experience etc but i'd love your opinion in this. You have certain ways that work for you or you improvise a bit?
I have one more question,if i get to know databases stuff, would that reduce tha use of I/O in java?

It sounds a bit as if you're in need of a good tutorial on Java I/O. You've probably come across the relevant chapter in the Java Tutorial, but if that's not to your liking, may be a dedicated book will help, like http://www.ibiblio.org/java/books/javaio2/

No. The I/O stuff is used for file access and TCP/IP communication (for the most part); the DB part is separate from that.
