I am using the following code to write to a text file. The file is getting created but it is empty.

BufferedWriter out = null;
        try {
            out = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("C:\\abc.txt", true));
        }catch(Exception e) {
        for(int i=0; i<invalidCodesList.size(); i++) {
            int code = ((Integer)invalidCodesList.get(i)).intValue();
            invalidChars[i] = new Character((char)(code)).toString();
            try {
                out.write(code+" : "+invalidChars[i]);
                Logger.getInstance().writeLog(code+" : "+invalidChars[i]);
            } catch (IOException ioe) {
            Logger.getInstance().writeLog("ASCII code value is ----- "+code+"::::: character is ::  "+invalidChars[i]);

Please tell me why it is not writing to the file.
