Class Data

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.jorphan.collections.Data
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class Data
extends Object
implements Serializable

Use this class to store database-like data. This class uses rows and columns to organize its data. It has some convenience methods that allow fast loading and retrieval of the data into and out of string arrays. It is also handy for reading CSV files. WARNING: the class assumes that column names are unique, but does not enforce this.
