opening a file in FileWriter

  Asked By: Bryant    Date: May 26    Category: Java    Views: 1234
  

When I try and write a file like this:

FileWriter fw=new FileWriter("settings.xml");
fw.write("asd");
fw.flush();
fw.close();

It dosnt write anything to the file but dosnt cause an
exception either. When I try this:

FileWriter fw=new FileWriter("/home/auser/settings.xml");
fw.write("asd");
fw.flush();
fw.close();

It works.

How do I get the path name of my current directory?

You can use the System Property to get the user's current  working
directory, but I don't see anything wrong with your code. Both
versions worked when I tested them.

String currentDirectory = System.getProperty("user.dir");
