    Question i dont know where the problem is...help me here

    I tried to create a text file named Employee.txt. It holds the details of the employees including their Employee ID, name, designation, department, address, and phone number. The text file contains the following code:
    import java.io.*;

    public class EmpDetails
    {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
    RandomAccessFile file=null;
    try
    {
    /* Opens the file in read/write mode */
    file=new RandomAccessFile("Employee.txt","rw");
    //code to write data to the file
    String s = "Employee ID " + “E001”+ " Employee Name" +”Steve” +"Designation" +”Accountant”;
    file.seek(file.length());
    file.writeBytes(s);
    file.close();
    } catch(IOException e)
    {
    System.out.println("Exception: " +e);
    }


    The entries are not stored permanently to the storage device. What is the might be problem with the preceding code?

    Have you got any errors because in my machine your code is working fine.
    It creates a text file with title "Employee.txt" and write the data in that file.

    I want it to be stored permanent
    Nothing written to a disk file is permanent. It can be overwritten or deleted.
    Please explain what you mean by "permanent".
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
