actually i want to edit that using java programming..........
sir is it possible to do that

You need to be on the .latest version of Java (Java 7, or version 1.7) then you can use the "new I/O" classes to access that kind of metadata.
It's all very new, so there's not a lot of examples on the web yet, but here's a good place to start:
