Avengers,Joss Whedon,9.0
Panday,Carlo J. Caparas,6.9
Les Miserables,Tom Hooper,7.9

i'm suppose to add those above things from a text file to an arraylist.

and to add those to an arraylist the methods required goes at

I think here is my problem..

am i using the delimiter right to get the movie title, movie director, rating correct?
because of addMovie(String title, String director, double rating) . so if i want to add Avengers,Joss Whedon,9.0 should i use a delimeter
or is there an easier way..
