have a look at the the javadoc for any otyher methods your require:

eg.

 File getAbsoluteFile()
          Returns the absolute form of this abstract pathname.
 String getAbsolutePath()
          Returns the absolute pathname string of this abstract pathname.
 File getCanonicalFile()
          Returns the canonical form of this abstract pathname.
 String getCanonicalPath()
          Returns the canonical pathname string of this abstract pathname.
 String getName()
          Returns the name of the file or directory denoted by this abstract pathname.
 String getParent()
          Returns the pathname string of this abstract pathname's parent, or null if this pathname does not name a parent directory.
 File getParentFile()
          Returns the abstract pathname of this abstract pathname's parent, or null if this pathname does not name a parent directory.
 String getPath()
          Converts this abstract pathname into a pathname string.

f.getAbsoluteFile()
f.getAbsolutePath()
f.getCanonicalFile()
f.getCanonicalPath()
f.getName()
f.getParent()
f.getParentFile()
f.getPath() ............etc......

......here is the example code you can use it...........to find out the details...

                        System.out.println();
                        System.out.println("*************************************************************");

                        System.out.println("getName()          = " + f.getName());
                        System.out.println("getAbsoluteFile().getName() = " + f.getAbsoluteFile().getName());

                        boolean exists = f.exists();
                        if(exists)
                              System.out.println("Exists()           = " + exists);
                        else
                              System.out.println("Does not exists()           = " + exists);


                        if (!exists) { System.exit(1);  }

                        System.out.println("canRead()          = " + f.canRead());
                        System.out.println("canWrite()         = " + f.canWrite());
                        System.out.println("getPath()          = " + f.getPath());
                        System.out.println("getAbsolutePath()  = " + f.getAbsolutePath());
                        System.out.println("getCanonicalPath() = " + f.getCanonicalPath());
                        System.out.println("getAbsoluteFile()  = " + f.getAbsoluteFile());
                        
                        // External Usage Options
                        //System.out.println("toURL()            = " + f.toURL());
                        //System.out.println("toURI()            = " + f.toURI());

                        System.out.println("getParent()        = " + f.getParent());
                        System.out.println("isAbsolute()       = " + f.isAbsolute());

                        boolean isDirectory = f.isDirectory();
                        if(isDirectory)
                              System.out.println("isDirectory()      = " + isDirectory);
                        else
                              System.out.println("isNotDirectory()   = " + isDirectory);
                        
                        boolean isFile = f.isFile();
                        if(isFile)
                              System.out.println("isFile()           = " + isFile);
                        else
                              System.out.println("isNotFile()        = " + isFile);

                        System.out.println("isHidden()         = " + f.isHidden());
                        System.out.println("lastModified()     = " + (d = f.lastModified()) + " = " + new Date(d));
                        System.out.println("length()           = " + f.length());

                        if (isDirectory)
                        {
                              String[] subfiles = f.list();
                              
                              for (int i=0; i < subfiles.length; i++)
                              {
                                    System.out.println("File in this Dir   = " + subfiles[i] );
                              }
                        }

                        System.out.println("*************************************************************");
                        System.out.println();
