this code traverse through the directory and sub directory...i need to pass the directory as an input for another program...however here it shows file also as a directory....that leads to an file not found error in the other code ....can anyone please suggest a solution for this problem...thanks in advance

you can create an Arraylist, and whenver isDirectory is true. add it in ur arraylist.. pass that list as a parameter in other call.

if (!di.isDirectory()) return; not working.......please help..

    }

i did this......now i'm able to send only directory....i just wanted to check before the recurssive call..if it was a directory or not ...if (!di.isDirectory()) return; was not able to filter and send only directory.....
thanks for ur quick reply..

Like I said. Make it the first line of the method. It does no good to check whether or not it is a directory after you have already called listFiles on it.
