The project focuses on programming solutions like multi-threaded reading, preprocessing of data, and using memory mapped files provided by the Java New I/O API to reduce I/O bottlenecks which is one of the major performance degrading factors for faster data access. The project also explores the possibility of utilizing databases as a solution to study and compare the performance of database querying over flat file reading.
