I need to write a program to capture a volume label of a CD-ROM drive and also a list of all the folders and root files on the CD. I'd like to use Java to do this.

Can anyone point me to any resources which give info on this?

Windows solution for volume labels:

Kernel32.java


import java.util.*;

public class Kernel32
{
    static
    {
         System.loadLibrary("JKernel32");
    }
   
    private static native String getLogicalDriveStrings();
    public static native String getVolumeLabel(String root);
   
    public static Enumeration enumLogicalDrives()
    {
         Vector v=new Vector();
         String drives=getLogicalDriveStrings();
         StringTokenizer st=new StringTokenizer(drives);
         while(st.hasMoreTokens())
              v.addElement(st.nextToken());
         return v.elements();
    }
}


Generate header with javah:

javah Kernel32

Start Visual C++ and make new dll with the name JKernel32.
Import here previously generate Kernel32.h.

Insert new C++ file and type here:

#include "Kernel32.h"
#include <windows.h>

JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_Kernel32_getLogicalDriveStrings(JNIEnv * env, jclass c)
{
    char buffer[256]={0};
    char drives[256]={0};
    ::GetLogicalDriveStrings(256,buffer);
    char *p=buffer;
    lstrcpy(drives,"");
    while(*p!=0)
    {
         strncat(drives,p,3);
         strcat(drives," ");
         p+=4;
    }
    return
         env->NewStringUTF(drives);
}


JNIEXPORT jstring JNICALL Java_Kernel32_getVolumeLabel(JNIEnv * env, jclass c, jstring r)
{
    const char *root=env->GetStringUTFChars(r,0);
    char volumeNameBuffer[MAX_PATH];
   DWORD lVolumeSerialNumber=0;
    DWORD lMaximumComponentLength=0;
    DWORD lFileSystemFlags=0;
    char fileSystemNameBuffer[10];
    if(::GetVolumeInformation(root,volumeNameBuffer,MAX_PATH,&lVolumeSerialNumber,&lMaximumComponentLength,&lFileSystemFlags,fileSystemNameBuffer,10))
    {
         env->ReleaseStringUTFChars(r,root);
         return env->NewStringUTF(volumeNameBuffer);
    }
    env->ReleaseStringUTFChars(r,root);
    return NULL;
}


Compile the project and put  JKernel32.dll into the same directory as Kernel32 class.

Try this:

Test.java

import java.util.*;

public class Test
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
         String drive,label;
         Enumeration e=Kernel32.enumLogicalDrives();
         while(e.hasMoreElements())
         {
              drive=(String)e.nextElement();
              label=Kernel32.getVolumeLabel(drive);
              System.out.println(drive+":"+label);
         }
    }
}

After capturing the roots you use File Object and its methods.
Enjoy.
