This is the following response from sun certification. My question to them was:
Q:
I wanted to know what exactly are the contents of ASCII flat data text file which accompanies developer assignment ?. Does it contain only delimited records or delimited records with schema
(Column names) of the records also ?. Apart from schema and records Is there any other information in ASCII file regarding schema of the record ?. Whatever may be the contents of ASCII file. Please do write me I am waiting for your mail eagerly.
--------------------------------------------------
THE FOLLOWING IS THE ANSWER::
The db.db file is read and written by some of the methods that are provided for you in the Data.java file. Any knowledge you need about the format of db.db can be deduced by reading the source in Data.java, and/or by
inspecting the contents of db.db.
--------------------------------------------------
Could you connote me what technically does that answer means ?. I had yet not downloaded my assignment. Post soon.
:roll:

It means what it says. Using Data.java you will be able to manipulate the database file called db.db. It is a binary file that contains the data along with the column names. You will know more about the delimiters when you download it.
