    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    YOUR CODE HERE
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    Please explain what your problems are. What does the program do when it is compiled and executed? If there are error messages, copy the full text and paste it here.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    You might try to actually use br before posting your errors.

    You must call some methods of the BufferedWriter class that will write to the file. Look at the API doc for the BufferedWriter class to see what method(s) to use.
