Specify a path for a file or a directory in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The path for a file can be obtained using the method java.io.File.getPath(). This method returns the abstract pathname in the form of a pathname string and it 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("Path = " + file.getPath());
}
}

The output of the above program is as follows −

Output

Path = C:/jdk11.0.2/demo1.java

Now let us understand the above program.

The path name of the file is printed using the method getPath(). 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("Path = " + file.getPath());
