Why is BufferedReader not reading, but clearing my text file?

Followed this: http://www.mkyong.com/java/how-to-read-file-from-java-bufferedreader-example/



In the constructor I create the BufferedReader using the FileReader and path to the input text file(in same dir as this project). When I am done reading I close it. In the debugger it is unable to read a single line, then goes to close the file.

It's the BufferedWriter which is clearing your file, not the reader.

Since Java 7, you can use the try-with-resources statement around the BufferedReader so you don't have to close it explicitly.
