Hello, I made little Swing program, I have also one button, now im wondering how to create this kind of function:

After Presing X button it should automaticaly open Hosts file, edit it, add some lines, and save.

Would be great if someone can help me, thanks in advice.

Why are you using StringTokenizer, which is a legacy class?
What is supposed to happen and what goes wrong? Please look at this FAQ.
Why are you doing anything to a file in system32?
Why have you written an empty catch block?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
