         raf.writeUTF(s);

         // set the file pointer at 0 position
         raf.seek(0);

         // read string
         System.out.println("" + raf.readUTF());

         // set the file pointer at 0 position
         raf.seek(0);

         // write a string at the start
         raf.writeUTF("This is an example");

         // set the file pointer at 0 position
         raf.seek(0);

         // read string
         System.out.println("" + raf.readUTF());

         ex.printStackTrace();
      }

   }
}

Assuming we have a text file c:/test.txt, which has the following content. This file will be used as an input for our example program:

ABCDE  

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Hello world
This is an example
