Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing files and directories, part of Advanced Java Programming.
In Java 7, once you know how to use the Path class to point to a directory or a file, it's…another simple step to start managing those files to be able to copy, delete, and move them around.…To do this, you use a class called files, the second major part of this new package.…I'm working in a project where I have a file called loremibsom.txt, and it's stored within…a files folder, within the project.…And within my main code I've created a Path Object called source that points to that file…using a relative location.…
This string should work exactly the same regardless of whether you are working on Mac or Windows.…I'm getting a reference to the file and then outputting the file name, I'll run the code,…and I'll see the output file name in the console.…Now, I'm going to show how to copy and how to delete files.…Before I do this with code, I'm going to make a copy of the files, so just in case I mess…up, I'll be able to restore it.…So I'll copy and paste it, and I'll name the new file backup.txt.…
