Hello everyone,
I am an computer science Engineering Student.One of my friend made a project of a File Breaking Application in java,He says it can break down large files to small pieces which we can carry in CD, Pen-drives or upload to web easily and those pieces can be integrated again with the help of that application to generate the original file.
I asked him about how he made it,he denied saying "competition blah blah"...And He's right at his place because not every developer likes to disclose his/her codes or strategies.

That's why I ask in this forum how this type of applications are made.Please tell me a general overview and important terms so that I can search Google and learn to make such Applications by my own.

I promise i will work hard and learn everything that you people will tell me.

Thanks

That's ridiculous. Techniques for this are old and time-tested; there's nothing fancy about them. Search for "multi part file archiving" or some such phrase, and you'll find plenty of examples.

What a small minded attitude some people have.
Ask your friend how he learned the stuff he knows and he'll almost certainly have to admit to people having taken the time to share their knowledge with him. Be it friends, work colleagues or sites like this one most, if not all, experienced programmers have had freely given help and advice along the way and those that want to continue to learn and develop their skills will continue to seek help and advice from others.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
