Java Program to get the File object with the absolute path for the directory or file


The method java.io.File.getAbsoluteFile() is used to get the File object with the absolute path for the directory or file. This method requires no parameters.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.io.File;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      File file = new File("C:" + File.separator + "jdk11.0.2" + File.separator, "demo1.java");
      System.out.println("The absolute file is: " + file.getAbsoluteFile());
   }
}

The output of the above program is as follows −

Output

The absolute file is:/C:/jdk11.0.2/demo1.java

Now let us understand the above program.

The file object with the absolute path is obtained using the method java.io.File.getAbsolutePath() in the form of a string and is printed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is given as follows −

File file = new File("C:" + File.separator + "jdk11.0.2" + File.separator, "demo1.java");
System.out.println("The absolute file is: " + file.getAbsoluteFile());
