Hello Everybody,

I have a file path like this:
C:/Documents and ettings/ravuri.DS17/Desktop/PBSFiles/Ram1234.txt.

I need to extract the file name i.e., Ram1234.txt.
And the important thing is always the file path is changing(like
C:/Ram1234.doc) and the extension of the file may change like...Ram1234.doc.
So how to extract the file name in JAVA from the path(whatever may be the path).
Can anybody help me in this regard.

Thanks for your time and patience.

Thx,
Rams

Piece of cake:

public class Demo
{
   public static void main(String[]args)
   {
      String str = "asshhs/dfhdfhdf/djgj/Ram1234.txt";
      String fileName = "";
      fileName=str.substring(1 + str.lastIndexOf("/"));

      System.out.println(fileName);

   }
}
