    Default [Beginner]Database project help

    So I am working on making a code for my Aunt who is a doctor, This is what the code does
    1.Asks Name
    2.Asks Gender(press 1 for male, 2 for female)
    3.Occupation(1-student,2-job,3-Others)
    if we select 3 we are made to write the other occupation
    4.Ask age
    5.Shows the Name,Gender,Occupation and age in a formal manner
    proceeds to ask if we wanna add another patient
    So What I want this code to be able to do is but have no idea how are:-
    1. I want step 5 to be written on a text file in my computer and continue to add as we keep on adding more patients.
    2. I want to be able to search through the patient based on the age,name,etc. You get the drill.
    You don't need to write the full code if you don't want to but it will be really Helpful if anyone can teach me how to write informations in a text with example and how i can read those text files later and search them based on age and name
    Here is the code
    Ignore the Search by name,age etc part of the program I Havnt worked on them yet as I dont know how to write the informations I get to a text file in my computer and then read then in java and search thorough the database

    how to write informations in a text file
    You can use a PrintWriter class object to write text to a file. The print and println methods will write Strings to the file.

    Before writing any code, you need to design the layout of the file so that the data can be read back and updated later.

    Write a small test program that writes and reads a file with hard coded values to see how to use the classes and methods BEFORE trying to put code into your existing program. After you have worked out the techniques, then look at merging the code into your program.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Thank you that helps a lot while leaving space for me to experiment myself
    Can you tell me about how to read too? n search through it?

    The Scanner class has methods for reading a simple text file.
