My sorter is not working. I managed to sort by product name in my previous assignment; however, I can't get it to work on this one. I changed things around so much in the program that I'm lost on how to get it going again. I also blocked that part of the code off with delimiters; I didn't want it to interfere with program









Here's my previous assignment, with the sorter working.

Thanks! It's just that I'm such a dummy with creating codes from reading the API. When you read the API about the mkdirs, it doesn't tell you about using if and else statements to accomplish the task required. Usually, I read my textbook, or other reading materials (e.g. Java for Dummies) to help me out; however, none of the material touches on creating directories. When I take a look at the API, I'm like in the middle of an Ocean and can't swim. I wish I was able to read the API and formulate my code just off of that. I read the API and I'm like... so? What advice can you give me with regard to understanding the API well enough to create a code? Any code?

Hello everyone!

My assignment requires that I use exception handling to create a directory and file if necessary.

I was able to create a C:Data\inventory.dat file, provided that there's an existing Data folder (directory) in my C: drive; however, I have a feeling that the assignment wants me to create an actual Data folder if one is not available. When I remove the Data folder from my C: drive, I get "C:\data\inventory.dat (The system cannot find the path specified)".

How am I to create able a folder that currently does not exist? I'm reading the java.sun website on the File class, the mkdirs methods, and the FileSystemView class; however, I'm having trouble implementing the requirements in my code (I wish API documentation was more understandable to me.). Can an example be provided? Thank you everyone.
