I have two questions.  First, there seems to be very little activity on 
  
this java mail list. Could anyone who subscribes to this list identify   
yourself.  I promise I won't start mailing you questions.  I just want to   
find out how many people are out there listening.
        Second, if anyone is trying to develop applications using the AS/400   
Toolbox for Java, I'm disappointed by the methods provided for the   
KeyedFile class.  Does anyone have a different opinion? The class does   
not seem to provide the capabilities that would be useful for positioning   
and reading through a keyed file.  I know the class provides about a   
dozen methods for accessing records, but when I try to actually start   
using them in a real application, I find them to be lacking.  As an   
example, there does not seem to be a method to simply position you to the   
end of a file or to read the last record in a file. You can use the   
methods provided to attempt to simulate these functions, but I find   
myself starting to need to make assumptions about the data to easily   
accomplish these tasks and others.  Any comments or suggestions would be   
greatly appreciated. Thanks.
