important typeCasting

hello:

in this code am adding a student to a file. but the student record has id, name, and major....i want to prevent user from adding two names of same id because id is unique :


String S;
String file;

String S2="
"+jTextField1.getText().trim();
String L=jTextField1.getText().trim();

if (S2.equals("
"))
{
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(this,"Insert Student's Information!");
return;
}
file="students.txt";

try{
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader ( new FileReader(file));
while ((S=in.readLine())!=null)
{
if (S.equals(L))
{
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(this,"This Student Already Exists: Cannot Add twice!");
return;
}
}
in.close();
BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter ( new FileWriter(file,true));
out.append(S2);
out.close();

}

catch (IOException e) {
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(this,"Error locating file. Please make sure the file is in the right directory!");
}


how do i typecast S into Type Student in order to use the class information and compare....????

help me plzzz

    Because you are trying only to check a single field you don't need to typecast the Strudent into a String, but an Integer to a String. See the Integer object for that.
