I know what u mean , i had encountered the same problem where the data i was writing was getting overwritten . This tends to happen when the data to the file is written by several methods spread across a package . U can do one thing u can declare the BufferedWriter as a class variable .Then in the constructor initialize it to the file that u want to write . This can be used till the current object is in the scope
Now when u are done with the writing part u can close the file . Usually this should be done somewhere in the end of the main method to be safe .
