Item loader

The program, ItemLoader, is an application that helps create the database of question/answer pairs for ItemTester.

Functional Requirements.

The program will:

1. allow the user to enter question/answer pairs one-by-one (also requiring topic(s) for an item).

2. allow the user to process a batch file in a predefined format.

3. check the new words against the database to make sure this question/answer pair does not already exist.

The format for the batch file:


3. write out the user's input into the XML file.
