> The javadoc for this method has a pretty unambiguous statement: "The file will be created
if it does not exist."  However, this isn't happening.  The code is pretty clear on this:
> {code:java}
> public static FileOutputStream openOutputStream(File file, boolean append) throws IOException
{
>         if (file.exists()) {
>             if (file.isDirectory()) {
>                 throw new IOException("File '" + file + "' exists but is a directory");
>             }
>             if (file.canWrite() == false) {
>                 throw new IOException("File '" + file + "' cannot be written to");
>             }
>         } else {
>             File parent = file.getParentFile();
>             if (parent != null) {
>                 if (!parent.mkdirs() && !parent.isDirectory()) {
>                     throw new IOException("Directory '" + parent + "' could not be created");
>                 }
>             }
>         }
>         return new FileOutputStream(file, append);
>     }
> {code}
> If it doesn't exist, it will just try to create a FileOutputStream, which throws a FileNotFoundException.
