Hello Friends,
I have to make a java program which reads data from a text file(about 10 mb in size), and than inserts that data into the database. Can i somehow make my code run faster?,
is java.nio.* faster than java.io.* ?
should i try using it?

plz advice

On the database side - not exactly what you asked about - look into batching your insert statements. The Statement interface has a couple methods to do with batching. Best of luck!

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
