If using a FileWriter, you can write a newline character directly a in:

    FileWriter out = ...
    out.write("\n");

It would better, though, to use the platform-specific line separator sequence. You can get this from System properties:

    String sep = System.getProperty("line.separator");
    out.write(sep);

If you wrap your FileWriter with a BufferedWriter -- which is a good performance idea anyway -- then you can use the BufferedWriter's newLine method which does the above.

    FileWriter fw = ...
    BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(fw);
    out.newLine();

Best regards,

Use a PrintWriter to print to your file and use the method println() which inserts a platform independant newline.
