Hi pals,
May b a cily question but just to be confirmed ---- Data retrieving from a flat file is done thru Streams/Reader/Writer ---- but can that be done using one of 4 methods of JDBC? I think no (at least theoritically as a flat file is a data contaner btu not database)....but plz confirm me....
But then how XML documents data r processed by Java applications? Thinking it as a flat file / or an object databse?
