i've written a class, Append.class, that has one method,
doAppend(String open, String write) that opens file "open" and adds a new line "write" to that file. if Append.class is in the same directory as a servlet i write, can the servlet create an Append object and call the doAppend() method of that object? here is all the code i am using, in this order:
Append.java: (what i am tryin to call from my servlet)


PassNgo.java (the servlet that should do the calling)

finally, the html page that gets the info

i would really appreciate any help, thanx

In short, yes it is possible to do what you want.
Some comments....
- you don't need the main() method in the Append.java
- you need to import Append in your servlet.
- you are better of writing your own no argument constructor
for the Append class (a default is avail, but just good practice)
- your choice of varaibles "open" and "write" maynot a good
one, IMO anyways, these are method names in java so maybe confusing...

just a few of my thoughts....

I am not sure, but did you try
FileWriter toWrite = new FileWriter(fileReference, true);
?
