4. How to get the file name and location?

You can't get that in the general case. Unless you're running in a debugger and you've told it where your .java files are, they're not usually even present when the program runs. Even the class file may not be on the local file system. Why do you think you need this information?

7. new File("filename") not creating files

Think of a File object as the description of a hypothetical file. The actual file may or may not exist, and in fact there's a method File.exists() (or the like -- look it up) to tell you whether it actually exists. Creating a File with a given path is like creating "Bob Wilkins, Fort Wayne, Indiana" on a piece of paper. ...

9. how to get the current filename in java

Define "the current file" first. The entire concept is pretty ridiculous in applications that don't work with files, and in most others it's irrelevant because there's never more than one relevant file open that's in use in a particular part of the application so there's no possibility of confusion what file is being worked on at any specific moment.

15. Interesting problem related to file name

Our precise requirement is for the file name only. In our application, we would be writing to existing directory only. We are using File.Seperator to take care of OS independence. What we actually want to achieve is to know the exact problem with the file name. i.e. we want to know which are the invalid characters in the file name.

Hello, Merry Christmas to all, Is it possible not to display the file name in the browser bar? Like say, when we write, the index page name is not displayed.

I was using: \\MyServer\\F:\\Temp javacopy.txt I realized that Temp was a shared folder on the server and that I was not escaping the server. The following worked for me: \\\\MyServer\\Temp javacopy.txt Thanks. p.s. Does it have to reference a sharename? I have tried the following and it does not work: \\\\MyServer\\F:\\Temp1 javacopy.txt (Where Temp1 is not shared) Just wondering.

29. java file name

You seem to have a really hard time believing it works, even when you've seen it works. Extensions in general are not some magical construct that instantly transform the information in a file from one thing to another, you know... The file could be called "something.jpg" and still contain Java code, not an image. I don't think any of Java specs ...

I'm having a problem with spaces in the path name on a windows computer. Here's the issue: I use ClassLoader.getResource(filename) to retrieve a URL to a file.

Increment the number (from 0 to 1) 5. Format the new filename. I would use String's format method to pad the number with leading O's

34. How to get the complete file name?

Files don't keep a list of all the places they've been kept. If it used to be on someone's local disk and now it's on a webserver you can't just ask the file where it used to be. During upload the filename is provided within the multipart form data. That's your only opportunity to obtain the information. If you're using a ...

I have a program which follows a log file and does things based on what it finds.

40. WindowsXP: Complete Relative File Name

Hello I am working in Java on WindowsXP and am stuck. My program reads in files names from the Windows Registry and then attempts to operate on those files.

41. How to get the file name?

This is a great opportunity to explain what you want to achieve rather than what you're trying to do. When you say "file" do you want the class file, the jar file or the original source file? Why are trying to do that? Bear in mind that the compiled application may (and probably will) be distributed without the source code.

Is there a way to get the name of the current file I'm in? I'm using a jsp file (I didn't post this in the jsp forum because it's more a general java question), and it would simplify things if I could get the name of the current jsp file I'm in, instead of hard-coding it. There should be something like ...

44. Dynamic file name.

May I safely assume that you have absolutely no idea about Java? either that, or I absolutely don't get you, it seems. Sorry, but the File c'tor takes a String. If you don't want to hard-code it, just create it in any other way you find suitable. And all of this still hasn't anything to do with HTML or websites.

Have a look at the javadoc for the System class. It is possible to use the static getProperty() method to recover some information such as the users home and current working directories.
