I am developing a Database Engine in JAVA(no third party tool) which will store files on server.Logically the file would be a Table with some attributes.


Now the question is that whether JNDI would help me in building up a architecture for storing and for retrieval of files?


If there are any reference sites then plz give me it's URL

Hassan;

JNDI is only a set of interfaces that is intended to provide a common API to otherwise disparate naming and directory services.

That is not to say that there cannot be a file management database behind JNDI (there is quite a useful file system driver for JNDI ) but JNDI will only be the interface, and not the implementation.

If you are commited to building your own database engine instead of using a existing one, I would consider implementing a simple and brief but complete proprietary API, or if you are really commited, implement a JDBC driver.
