Projects / JRecord


JRecord allows you to read legacy, fixed width, and delimited flat files in Java. Files are interpreted via a Record-Layout (file description), which can be COBOL, XML, or CSV. The package provides an editor to edit files using the record layout, a wizard to build XML layouts from a files contents, and a formatted file compare that uses the layout in the compare process.
