I hope this is the right category for this, if not, please move it to the right place.
I need to access and modify .dbf files in order to create the necessary information for input to a mapping package called GeoTools. I found a package called xBaseJ that can do it, but it costs money.
Is there anything free that can do what I need? I know nothing about databases or database programming. I just want to be able to make some small modifications on the fly to a .dbf file.
Thanks in advance,
I agree. Here's the link:
