Hi Roel,

Another quick question, We have db-2x2.db file supplied by Sun.

Our code has method to update the DB. Wondering if we can update this db file while testing.

But in instructions it is mentioned that we need to package original DB file with out any modifications and submit to Sun.

Can you please shed some light here.

Well, create a backup copy of the original file and use another copy of it in the development phase. When you submit your project, use the backup copy. The file to be submitted to Oracle MUST have the original .db file.

Hi Gautham Kumar,

This topic is only for questions about Roberto's database file reader tool, so please post only questions about that tool in that topic. It's not intended to have questions about database file or its structure. If you have other questions (like this one or about the magic cookie), please start a new topic and your questions/doubts will definitely be addressed too. That's why I created 2 seperate threads with your questions.

Kind regards,
Roel

My good buddy Roberto is spot-on (as always). In my developing days (2009 when it was still Sun) we had to download a JAR containing the db file and the instructions.html. I had a copy of this JAR on my computer, on my work laptop, on a USB stick and on my webspace just to be sure to be able to submit an original .db file. It's a must requirement, so violating such a requirement results in failure (and this would be a very reason )
