options to store data other than .txt and database
Posted on 2010-11-07
I have to store few simple file names and other strings in hierarchal order. Something like There is a room(Frame) (lets say room no. 1) there are 10 posters in the room ( panels). Each poster can have any number of items ( components).
I have several of these rooms. User can create new room, remove/add posters and add/remove items on the poster. I want to store these information to make this app work.
I do not want to use database as this seems to be really simple to use a database. I was wondering if there are any alternatives to using text files. Or may be some tricks and suggestions to make reading and writing in files more organized.
