Hi,

I have written the code for copying the file,once the file is copied,need to delete the same,but the file is not getting deleted..

Kindly let me know the cause why file is not deleted.

Code is as below

import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
import org.apache.commons.io.IOUtils;

public class FileCopy {

	public static void main(String arg[]) {
		try {

			IOUtils.copy(new FileInputStream("C:\\temp\\abc.txt"),
					new FileOutputStream("C:\\temp_del\\abc.txt"));
			File f = new File("C:\\temp_del\\abc.txt");
			[subtitle]//file delete code not working[/subtitle]
                      [u] FileUtils.deleteQuietly(f);[/u]
		} catch (IOException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}
}

The deleteQuietly method will not throw any exception if there is something wrong, it just returns true (if the file is deleted) or false (if the file is not deleted). I'd suggest you use File.delete() and see if it throws any exception. Then we can investigate the cause of the exception.

CEHJ obviously this is a tutorial the asker is doing. In a tutorial it does make sense to copy A to B and immediately delete B.

Yes, no problem. Big files are probably better copied with nio though
