Java Create Directory - Java Tutorial

In the section of Java Tutorial you will learn how to create directory using java program. This program also explains the process of creating all non-existent ancestor directories automatically. We will use the class File class to crate the directory.
Class File
The File class an abstract representation of file and directory pathnames. File class is used to interact with the files system.


Here is the code for creating directory and all non-existing ancestor directories:
import java.io.*;
class CreateDirectory
{
 public static void main(String args[])
  {
  try{
  String strDirectoy ="test";
  String strManyDirectories="dir1/dir2/dir3";

  // Create one directory
  boolean success = (
  new File(strDirectoy)).mkdir();
  if (success) {
  System.out.println("Directory: " 
   + strDirectoy + " created");
  }  
  // Create multiple directories
  success = (new File(strManyDirectories)).mkdirs();
  if (success) {
  System.out.println("Directories: " 
   + strManyDirectories + " created");
  }

  }catch (Exception e){//Catch exception if any
  System.err.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());
  }
  }
}
