Hi Guys,
my problem is like this,
I am dynamically generating a html page using servlet.I don't want to send this HTML code ro browser(which parses it and display HTML page),insted i want to send HTML code to a text file(using file object in java.io package).I am not getting how to write it?
I would be thankful to you if any of you guys could clear my doubt ASAP.

The writing process to a file is same as u do to wrint the html to browser just create the out object something like this.
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter(filename));
now when u call out.print("<html>...") writes in the file specified.

Just out of sheer curiosity -- why would you want to do this??? It really sounds like you don't want a servlet at all...
