hai
any one tell me how can i append two files in java.

but these are the steps to be done:

note: directory1 & directory2 contains same files mostly

1- read the file1 from the directory1 // it is fine for me
2- read the file2 from the directory2 // it is fine for me

3- later i need to append file2 contents to the end of the file 1. // in this part i am lost with code.

thanks

Priyan,
Do you know how to write to a file? It's basically the same code except you pass a different boolean value for append when you create the writer.

thanks for the kind reply.
i was playing with this code, but i could not understand where to give the file names.
it might help me to link the directory part with this code later.
