hi,

package com.test;
import java.io.BufferedInputStream;
import java.io.DataInputStream;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.io.IOException;

/**
* This program reads a text file line by line and print to the console. It uses
* FileOutputStream to read the file.
*
*/
public class FileInput {

public static void main(String[] args) {

File file = new File("C:\\MyFile.txt");
FileInputStream fis = null;
BufferedInputStream bis = null;
DataInputStream dis = null;

try {

fis = new FileInputStream(file);

// Here BufferedInputStream is added for fast reading.
bis = new BufferedInputStream(fis);
dis = new DataInputStream(bis);

// dis.available() returns 0 if the file does not have more lines.
while (dis.available() != 0) {

// this statement reads the line from the file and print it to
// the console.
System.out.println(dis.readLine());

}


// dispose all the resources after using them.
fis.close();
bis.close();
dis.close();

} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
}
This is for Reading a file.

package com.test;
import java.io.*;

public class FileOutput {

public static void main(String[] args) {

FileOutputStream fos;
DataOutputStream dos;

try {
File file= new File("C:\\MyFile.txt");
fos = new FileOutputStream(file);
dos=new DataOutputStream(fos);
//dos.writeInt(2333);
dos.writeUTF("Hello");

}
catch (IOException e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
}

}

}

DataOutputStream does not write plain text files. It writes files for consumption by DataInputStream, so the files may not be readable in a text editor.
If you want a plain text file, use some sort of Reader and Writer combination.
