Hi All,
I recently downloaded FBN assignment and currently working on the DB conversion utility. I need some feedback on the following points:
1> Database conversion utility will be used in the future so I am assuming that the utility should be able to convert any ASCII file to binary database, of course meta-data will be different for the different ASCII files.
2> I am not sure but nowhere requirements suggest that the data validation should be performed. Will it be reasonable to assume that all fields are of the type String??
3> Data Conversion utility will be a stand alone application. No networking is required as this will be one off jobs and most probably done by the system admin. (I am not sure)
4> Can we use existing classes? This makes sense as OO means that we reuse the existing code.
Thanks in advance !!
Regds,
Milind

1. Any ASC file but with similar format of data.
2. Yes, no data validation is required and all fields are of type String (look at Data.Class)
3. Yes it is a stand alone program and will run separately from command line.
4. U should use Data.class to build the Binary File
