Java rename file

Hey guys!! Welcome to flower brackets blog. In this post we are going to learn java rename file.

java rename file

Here in the below example first we are predefining pathname as parameter in File class. In the next step renameTo() method of File class is used to rename appropriate file.

public boolean renameTo(File dest) // Renames the file denoted by this abstract pathname

Many aspects of the behavior of renameTo() method are inherently platform-dependent. Here’s the code implementation,


public class RenameFile 
   public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException 
      File oldFile = new File("D:\\Project\\flower.txt");
      File newFile = new File("D:\\Project\\flowerbrackets.txt");
         System.out.println("Rename successful");
         System.out.println("Rename failed");


Rename successful
