Your copying code itself is correct with one exception - 0 is a valid return valid for read; you should check for >= 0, > -1 or != -1 instead of > 0.
Now all you need to do is call that code twice. That means that you should put the copying code in a separate method; in fact, several libraries have utility methods for that.

Thanks Rob,
But now i can find only one file in my destination file...i did as you said...i replaced >0 to != -1 and placed the copying method separately...
can there be any problem with the extension of the file??here the extension for both source and destination files are .deb....

How are you calling the copy code now, for both files?

i'm not passing any arguments here...do i have to pass??
i'm calling the method after the OutputStream os = new FileOutputStream(file2,true);...and placed the while loop inside that method...
