Regarding your first post, do you have a question?
Regarding your second post, I can't begin to imagine what about COBOL's file handling strikes you as especially "good" -- you're going to have to list specific features you're looking for, and we will most likely be able to tell you where to look in Java's APIs for these features.
Finally, this isn't anything like "advanced" Java. I'll move this to our "I/O and Streams" forum for further discussion.
Regarding Question 1) I am running a java program from UNIX box. It is displaying all the log4j output which I want to back up into a log file, Where as I only want to display user specific message on running the script i.e. "The no of records in the file is 2000. Your processing speed will be 90 records / min. Do you want to continue Y/N"
Regarding Question 2) We have a strange requirement which needs large file(20k records) processing As I am not good in perl or other scripting languges I want to use Java
each record in a file may have (record format) token 1, token2, token3
After processing each record I need to append the record as token 1, token 2, token3, Y on success or failure
Please tell if I am unclear.

Regarding Question2) If there is a open source I would like to just browse through.
