i am new to JSP and need ur help in doing the following.
i have a text file that contains three columns: name, salary, tax with 10 rows of data.
eg: name salary tax
aa 1000 100
bb 2000 200
using JSP/Servlets, how is it possible to extract data values from salary and tax columns and perform calculation like (salary-tax),(salary+tax) etc.

You read the file by using
File f = new File("c:\\io\\data.txt");
RandomAccessFile rf = new RandomAccessFile(f,"rw");
and then split the line with Space or any other delimeter (which is being used in the text file)
using StringTokenizer
Here is the example..
| is the delimeter incase of ur file it is space
String username=null;
File f = new File("c:\\io\\data.txt");
RandomAccessFile rf = new RandomAccessFile(f,"rw");
StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(username,"|");
String pr="";
while (st.hasMoreTokens()) {

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
