With this release the incorporation of Log4J, JUnit and Cobertura is complete. The unit tests initially placed in several of the classes have been converted to use JUnit. Due to this conversion the Apache Xerces library used by the application has been updated to the latest version – leading to the addition of the xml-apis.jar file on the classpath. Time will now be spent improving the unit testing code coverage.
This is the initial release of the Format Check utility. Three sample flat file definitions are supplied along with three sample data files that can be used to understand the operation of the tool. The XSD for the Format Check schema is well documented, helping to explain the options available for validating files. The project’s website also has a description of the program’s operation.
