Dear Sir,

Does a RandomAccessFile() class create a new file if the file mentioned does not exist

Does the above code create the 'File1.txt' in the ka3 folder if i call the above code in a method throwing IOException, if the file does not exist.

Thanks in advance,

with regards,

The javadocs of the RandomAccessFile constructors answer this question.
