I have to create a directory with a specified name.
I am using the following

          boolean success = (new File(createDirName)).mkdirs();
          if (!success) {
           System.out.println("Directory creation failed");
          }


this code fails.
createDirName is a String variable which contains the value E:\del\06-08-2004
E:\del already exists. it just needs to create a directory with the name 06-08-2004. this value can't be harcoded as it is fetched at runtime.

should work (so should yours) assuming you have write permission for the "del" directory...

Ahh...is "E:" not the drive you are running the java app from?

According to this:

You need to do something with FileSystemView inside javax.swing.filechooser.* ;
