Java file create new file

This section demonstrates you how to create a new file.

Description of code:

Manipulating a file is a common task in programming. Java makes this easy by providing many useful tools. Through the use of these tools, you can can easily create a new empty file. Now for this task, we have used the method createNewFile() of boolean type which creates a new empty file if and only if a file with this name does not yet exist.

createNewFile(): This method of File class creates an empty file at the specified file location if a file with this name does not exist.

exists(): This method of File class checks whether the given file exists or not.

Here is the code:

import java.io.*;

public class FileCreate {
	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		File file = new File("C:/newfile.txt");
		if (file.exists()) {
			System.out.println("File already exists");
		} else {
			file.createNewFile();
			System.out.println("File is created");
		}
	}
}

Through the method createNewFile(), you can create a file.

Output:

File is created
