You can create a directory as suggested by Objects.

If you want to create one or more directories at one shot,

then

File file = new File(path);
file.mkdirs();


This way you can create all the directories at one shot.

try this..

String dirname = "your directory name"
File dir = new File(dirname);
  if(!dir.exists() )
         {
      dir.mkdirs();
            }
