Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting store types, part of Core Data for iOS and OS X.
I have this new, although straightforward, Cocoa application I've just written and started…to use adding some simple objects to it.…Now I have accepted the default store type that Xcode has provided for this application,…which of course, would be XML because it's a Cocoa app.…If I wanted to check then I would look in the AppDelegate file in the method that creates…the persistentStoreCoordinator.…Because it's here that it's looking for the file address, making sure that something is…there, creating a directory, if it's not, and this is the part we are really interested…in is adding the persistent store with the type, NSXMLSStoreType.…
Now if I had not started to actually use this application and add data to the store, I could…just go ahead and change the store type to one of the other, say NSSQLiteStoreType, and…go ahead and run that, we're going to have a problem.…The file couldn't be open because it isn't in the correct format.…Well, that kind of makes sense.…Now seeing as I'd only created three simple objects.…

Q: In the CoursesViewController.m file, I receive a message that the method dismissModalViewControllerAnimated is no longer supported by Apple. Is there a newer method to use?
A: You may have received the warning that a call to the dismissModalViewControllerAnimated: method is now deprecated.
This is a recently deprecated method, so the code _will_ continue to work using that call, but to remove the warning, change the code from:
to the current recommended version:
[self dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];
It should take care of that message.
