Here is a code exmple to write some text to a file on server:

File file = new File("c:\\text.txt");

FileOutputStream fileOutputStream = new FileOutputStream(file);

fileOutputStream.write("test string".bytes);

Note, that file will be located on a server, not on a client machine.

i get the following error:


Error creating issue: root cause: SyntaxError: ("mismatched input 'fileOutputStream' expecting NEWLINE", ('/data/home/jira/jss/jython/workflow/ticket.sh', 1, 17, 'FileOutputStream fileOutputStream = new FileOutputStream("/root/text.txt");\n'))
