Frank, I'm here too. I think one of the problems is that the list has not yet reached that critical mass where messages lead to other messages to other messages to ot..... you get the point. So every once in a while someone will start a thread, like you just did, but then it will go silent again. Most of us are just playing with Java now, so we don't have those "advanced" questions we post to midrange-l. However, I'm staying subscribed to the list for the day that Java on the 400 becomes popular enough to generate a good number of messages. (Of course that won't be until after 2000 since we're all so busy working on Y2K programming. <G>) -Walden -----Original Message----- From: DeSarro Frank [mailto:DeSarFra@mail.divintech.com] Sent: Monday, December 21, 1998 11:25 AM To: email@example.com Subject: Java questions 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.
