Flat files in Java made easy: JFileHelpers

June 7, 2008

It’s almost certain every Java programmer out there had to deal with handling of delimited or fixed length flat files at one moment of his career.

I have just created a library that makes it easier to work with that: JFileHelpers. It uses the awesomeness of Java annotations to allow you to handle flat files with minimum changed to existing code. It’s a port of the awesome FileHelpers C# library, by Marcos Meli.

We are also looking for developers who would be interested on joining the team. If you’re not available, you can also help by using the library, and giving feedback on features you’d like to see implemented.

Hope you like it, I would really like to hear your opinions on the library.
