Please find the code snippet below to generate the random number. you can get the number of lines of the file from the attached link -

http://www.faqs.org/docs/javap/c10/ex-10-2-answer.html

You may modify the code accordingly..
import java.security.SecureRandom;
import java.io.*;
 
public class GUID {
 
   private static SecureRandom s_secureRandom = new SecureRandom();
 
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
 
	   File file = new File("write.txt");
	   PrintWriter output = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(file)));
    
	   for (int i = 0; i < 10000 ;i++ )
		   output.println(generate());
 
	   output.close();
	   System.out.println("Your file has been written");
      
    }
  
   /**
    * generate guid from time,addr,hash and rand
    */
   public static String generate() {
      StringBuilder stringBuilder = new StringBuilder();
      int time = (int) System.currentTimeMillis();
      int rand = s_secureRandom.nextInt();
      stringBuilder.append(hexFormat(rand));
      return stringBuilder.toString();
   }
 
   /**
    * get int as 8-char string
    */
 
   private static String hexFormat(int data) {
      StringBuilder stringBuilder = new StringBuilder();
      stringBuilder.append("00000000");
      stringBuilder.append(Integer.toHexString(data));
      return stringBuilder.substring(stringBuilder.length() - 8);
   }
