Java file write in a transaction

Hello team,

I have a Java application which which needs to write a file to a filesystem destination completely before being read by anything.  Wouldn't this be easily achieved by running the file writing logic inside a transaction?  

This should not allow any user or application to see the file until writing is 100% complete.  Am I correct in this idea?

What do you mean by 'transaction' ?  
That's usually a term I'd use when dealing with databases.

One way of working with files is to write to a temporary file, and when complete (and successful), rename/move the file.

What is 'being read'?

Don't describe the code you think you need or the steps. Describe the GOAL
