hello, i'm writing a program that takes Multiple textfields and save them in a file. i make each textfield a String object and write each object into a file.i'm also able to each the text fields as objects back to each respective fields. my problem is how to make the file like a database where i can append each new record into the file rather than saving each record into a new file. do i have to create a randomaccessfile and save my textfields as an array of objects??? is there a simpler way of doing this??? thanks!!!!
