I have a string which has a zero in the beginning.
For example 01254.
When I write it into a file using BufferedWriter the 0 in the beginning is dropeed and onlu 1254 is written.
How can I write the whole 01254 in the file.
Any help will be highly appreciated.

Which method of the BufferedWriter are you using? How are you getting 01245 into the String in the first place?
