In a project I have a requirement of writing into ini (windows specific) files. Can you please give me some details how i can write the new "sectionname", "key","value" into an ini file.
I think by using setproperty method we can update the value of existing key, but how can I write the new key- value in an ini file.

You won't be the first person to have that requirement, or even the ten-thousandth person. I suggest googling for somebody who has already done an ini-maintainer in Java.

That's what the ini4j library does.
