am doing java logging to file using the logger class. In order to write logs to the file, a file handler was created using the 'append' mode.

However, when the
log entries are written to the log file, they are all entered on a single line.

How do I make each new log entry start on a new line?

Try to append the following at the end of line:

"\n"

or

"\r\n"

Better yet, use System.getProperty("line.separator"). That will use the platform dependant line separator - \n for Unix, \r\n for Windows, etc.
