    Default Why can't I write to file inside a doGet() method?

    Hey, I've made a very simple java servlet in Eclipse and I wrote my own logging class which opens a file and writes to it.
    This logging class works fine, however when I tried to use it inside the doGet method of my servlet it wouldn't open the file and write to it but my servlet worked fine. Any ideas what's going on? The file is not even created either.

    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
    		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
     
    		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
    		Enumeration en = request.getHeaderNames();
    		Object obj = null;
    		String temp = "";
    		while(en.hasMoreElements()){
     
    			obj = en.nextElement(); //gets name of header
    			temp = obj.toString();
    			temp = appender(temp);
    			response.getWriter().write(temp+request.getHeader(obj.toString()));
    			response.getWriter().println();
    		}
     
     
    		LogWriter.write("Why doesn't this stupid thing work???");
    		LogWriter.write("HELLO");
     
    	}

    Cheers

    I figure out the problem, I was missing the dependent class which did the writing from my web.xml file.
