hi friends,
A quetsion from mock exam!
What modes are legal for creating a new RandomAccessFile object?
Select all valid answers.
a. "w"
b. "r"
c. "x"
d. "rw"
e. "xrw"

The ans. given is b and d , I know these two are the valid modes but the question says "... for creating a NEW randomaccess file" that means only "rw" mode is valid otherwise mode "r" will give "FileNotFound" Exception. Isn't it?
SO right ans. should be only d.
Please confirm!

I read it differently - to create a new RandomAccessFile object .
The exception is thrown if the FILE object or filename does not exist.
Even if the file exists you will have to create a NEW RAF object to allow direct access to the file & use RAF class methods.
Which mock exam. is this from ?

Just the other day, I was thinking ... about this tiny ad:
