As you can see, I used method to print some text to a file. However I could just do " c:/users/t/desktop/iFaila.txt"
But this 'iFaila.txt.' is created in eclipse package. And I dont understand how to make work?

Just to make sure I understand your problem.

Currently your code is creating the file in the "current directory", which is the directory that Java thinks it is running from.  You actually want it to create the file on the desktop?

I want "int darbuotojai & double medAlga" to be writted to "iFaila", who is located in lt.klpvm package.
I DONT WANT TO CREATE FILE ON DESKTOP.

Welcome to the Ranch first

One thing you need to get right from the beginning is code formatting and indentation. As you may noticed, your code is all over the place. Before we move any forward, do this --> Ctrl + Shift + f (win keyboard) or Cmd + Shift + f (mac keyboard) and show us (re-post code by using code tags) how did it go.

The above code will print to file iFails.txt in user t's desktop.  Where do you want the file to be created?

Yes. BUT I DONT WANT to create file on desktop.

I want file to be created in project or in package. However I dont know how to define that directory.

This will create iFaila.txt in the directory that Java is started in, usually the project directory.  For instance, I tested this out in a project call "Play" in my workspace directory.  So for me, the file would be in:

 C:\Users\Knute\workspace\Play

If you want it in a package, this is a little or complex.  In my Play project, I have a directory src where all my source code is.  In src I have the package net.snortum.play.  So if I wanted to put the file in the project directory, I would usr this code:

Note, no "/" at the beginning of the path.  Does this make sense?
