You can use PrintWriter as


If you want to write on same line use print() instead of println ()


Life is easy because we write the source code.....

you can set the path of file
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(c:/deore/Hotel1.txt); //this will create Hotel.txt file under deore directory.(but deore folder must be exist under c directory)
