hi, I've provided an option in the GUI to select the data file. is it a good choice? Please help me? Because I've found a serious bug in the structure of the database. There is no provision in the data file to make sure that the file is FBN's data file. please help me. Thanks in advance. with regards manish
I modified the Data class constructor to do a validity check on the database and if it is a bad db, it throws and IOException... you can search for a conversion that I had with Michael about partial integrity check for a detailed discussion about this (that is if what I am describing is really what you are referring to).
