In this article we will see how to create a text file in java. In this example, we’ll use the PrintWriter class.

package com.javatechig;

import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.io.PrintWriter;
import java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException;

public class CreateTextFile {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		PrintWriter writer = null;
		try {
			/* Create a new file with UTF-8 encoding */
			writer = new PrintWriter("file1.txt", "UTF-8");

			/* Write content to file */
			writer.println("Hello, this is a binary file.");
			writer.println("Put your file contents here...");

			writer.close();			
			System.out.println("New File Created!");			
		} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}

	}
}
