Directory Permissions problem when using mkdir() of the File class
Posted on 2008-06-17
I hava a Java application that creates directories using the mkdir() method of the File class. This is in UNIX. when the directory is created by madir() it has drwxr-xr-x permissions string by default. As you can see the user has r/w/ex permissions, and the group has only r/ex permissions and does not have 'write' permissions. Our requirement is, when this directory is created, we must give permissions to the group also for writing.
Since mkdir() defaults to drwxr-xr-x, how can I set the peremissions to be drwxrwxr-x so that the group will also have write permissions when the directory is created.
