This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Can someone recommend to me a framework or anything off the shelf that can take some of the hand cranking out of developing some data mapping software. I trawled the apache web site half expecting someone working on one of their projects to have produced something I could reuse, unfortunately this doesn't appear to be the case.
Define data mapping. There is a Map utility in Java that may be exactly what you are looking for.
Try ( to save a posting cycle or two ) to explain it three ways:
code type explaination.
plain language explaination
free form thoughts on the matter

I want to be able to take files (typically flat files) although I may later on need to use XML, validate these files based on some simple validation rules and ultimately load the transalated data into a database. Not the most complicated stuff in the world, but I can't believe that there isn't a framework somewhere for simplifying the development of such a thing.
