I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think I see your problem. In your first section of code you left out:

import java.applet.*;

You are not supposed to write to any files anywhere when using applets. The only thing an applet can do with files is reading. This is for security reasons.

If you really want to write to files you have some options. The nicest in Java is the socket solution where you have an Java aplication running on the server which you can access from Java clients, applets or applications, to read and write to files. In this way you get moch more control over the i/o process.

If you want some good resources on things like this please let me know.
