Are you familiar with the classes in the java.io package? They can be used to read and write files. You could also use java.util.Properties class if you can arrange to have those values stored in a Hashtable.

There isn't much to it. Create a Properties object, call the put method to add name/value pairs, and then call store or storeToXML to save it all to an OutputStream. For the output stream you can use a FileOutputStream for the file in which you want to store the data.
