    I don't know if you can. What you can do is print out first to the screen and then print that to the file (or reverse order, it doesn't matter).

    How about Apache log4j 1.2 - log4j 1.2

    This might be somewhat over course though.

    Yeah it's easy to do one at a time. Although this code prints to the console first, the file is written a fraction of a second later:

    import java.io.*;
     
    public class Prasanna {
     
        /**
         * JavaProgrammingForums.com
         */
        public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
     
            // Print to console
            System.out.println("JavaProgrammingForums.com");
     
            // Print to file
            Writer output = null;
            File file = new File("myFile.txt");
            output = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(file));
            output.write("JavaProgrammingForums.com");
            output.close();
            System.out.println("File written");   
     
        }
     
    }
