    Hey everyone,

    Been trying to clean up my code for a plugin that I've been developing, and a lot of my clutter comes from my crude attempts to manage flatfiles.

    Can anyone recommend a solid flatfile library for Java?



    Looking for anything that can read, write, and edit lines for files delimited by ":"s.

    If you're looking for a good flatfile library, you might want to think about using a flatfile format like YAML rather than just rolling your own.

    Why not just use the Properties class?

    Properties class requires you to use strings, and unless you split the value string up, can only store a key and a value.

    So have your value be a pipe or comma delimited collection?

    What are you trying to store? As the chunk collections in MC have proven, just because you CAN store something in one way doesn't mean you should.
