    Default Difference between FileReader and Scanner

    Greetings People

    In j2se1.4 we have FileReader class to read the content of file and in j2se1.5 we have new class called Scanner class which does the same thing, can anyone tell me what is the difference and do we need BufferReader class for Scanner ?

    Thank you all

    Yes. Scanner is horribly ineffecient. It is not meant for "bulk" anything.
