Moving files is easy in Java. Try java.io.File.rename(File)... to specify the pathname to perform the moving of file.

Copying is more difficult, you can open a FileInputStream and a FileOutputStream to copy a file.

Or use the java.lang.Runtime.exec(...) to excute DOS command in new Process, it's more easy in Java Application.
