Question: I use logging in my application... The problem is that I am opening the PrintWriter stream only once and keep it open until my application is stopped. Open PrintWriter stream does not let to open logs in text editor and users can not read logs...
Appears a error message like this: "Can not open file, it used by another application…"
Is it possible to solve the problem?

Answer: It depends on OS type. For example in Windows NT you can use command "type":

type log.txt > log_copy.txt and then read log_copy.txt file in any text editor...

In UNIX use command "cat":

cat log.txt > log_copy.txt
