In my .xml file, I have the following property:

<property name="file" value="-database.0 data/db"/>

I know that the file will be under /data/db, but, what do we mean by:

-database.0?

Thanks.

If you don't know the meaning of what's in one of your XML files, how are we supposed to know? Is this some standard XML format, or did you design it?

I'm just studying it from a book.

Well, my guess is that you're asking about the name of a file. But this is not a question about XML, it just happens that your data is embedded in an XML document. It's a question about your data. I could move this to another forum but there wouldn't be any point, since there aren't any forums about your data here.

If it's just an example you saw in a book and there isn't any context, then don't worry about the exact meaning.
