    Default Blocking format (important)

    hi pals!

    I have a project to know the blocking format of programming languages like JAVA.

    As you all are JAVA programmers, I would like to ask you the question:

    What is the blocking format of JAVA?

    Thanks in advance

    What do you mean be "blocking format"? What do you think the answer is? What did google tell you?

    PS- Saying things like "(important)" will actually decrease your chances of getting help. There are hundreds of posts here, each with an urgent user who considers his/her post to be important. Mentioning the importance of your post makes you seem impatient, or like you value your time more than the other users here. That's one way to be ignored.

    As far as I know, there are 4 types of blocking formats for records storage:
    1. There are fixed size blocks and the blocks are as single parts (eg. a chain of records are is stored just in one block)
    2. There are fixed size blocks and the blocks are as two parts (eg. a chain of records may be stored into 2 different blocks)
    3. There are unfixed size blocks and the blocks are as single parts
    4. There are fixed size blocks and the blocks are as two parts

    C and Pascal use the 4th type. Foxpro uses the 1st type.
    Now, this is my question: Which type does JAVA use to store records?

    Are you talking about writing to memory? To hard drive?

    Either way, the answer is that you can't know. Java doesn't expose that kind of stuff. It might even be implementation/OS dependent. As Java programmers, we typically don't care about that kind of thing.

    Unless I'm confused, and you're actually talking about something else?
