moving file from one folder to another

hai every body,The Folderdirectory (filetransfer) contains 2 folders
 
 1.folder1
 2.folder2

our target is to send a file from one folder to another.
i.e when we are moving a file which exists in folder1 to folder2 ,the file should
   not be available to folder1, but it should be available in folder2 only.
in my code the file is available in both the folders,when i am deleting also.
the problem what i find is the file is still exists in fileinputstream object only
how to sort out this.

<html>
<body bgColor="#defddd">
<pre>
<form action="http://localhost:8080/servlet/copyfile10" method="post">
Filename:             <input type=text name="fname" value="">

Select Source Folder: <select name="file">
<option value=folder1>folder1
<option value=folder2>folder2

</select>



                             Select Destination Folder:<select name="file1">
                             <option value=folder1>folder1
                             <option value=folder2>folder2
                           
                             </select>

<input type=submit value="Submit">

Hi Indupriya,

 Try the following code

          try
         {
             File f = new File("source file name");
             int size = new Long(f.length()).intValue();
             byte[] data = new byte[size];  
             RandomAccessFile sFile = new RandomAccessFile(f,"r");
             sFile.read(data);
             RandomAccessFile dFile = new RandomAccessFile("new filename and location","rw");
             dFile.write(data);
             Runtime.getRuntime().exec("c:\\winnt\\system32\\cmd.exe /C del <original source filename>");
         }
          catch(Exception e){e.printStackTrace();}

 This example however will work on windows NT, you will need to modify the last line of code according to the OS.

You got a easy method renameTo(File dest) in File class which moves a file from one folder to another.

Hi,

 There could be various ways of achieving this.Here is
 one more.

 1. Read the contents of the first file.
 2. Create and Write the contents read in step 1 to a new
    file in the new location.
 3. Delete the first file from the original location.
    For this u can use the Runtime.exec  method to execute
    the OS command for deleting a file.

Please let me know if u need the exact code.
