There are two commands available on a File object to create a directory. File.mkDir() will create just the directory specified by the File object. All parent directories must already exist. The second method, File.mkDirs() will create any necessary directories to create the entire path specified.

// if ParentDir exists, this invocation will work
File targetDir = new File("c:/ParentDir/TargetDir");
if (!targetDir.exists())

// if ParentDir may not exist yet, you can use 
// mkDirs() instead and all directories will be created
File targetDir = new File("c:/ParentDir/TargetDir");
if (!targetDir.exists())

hey Ezzaral.

I am new to java programming and wud be very gratefull if you can suggest me with some tutorial links with which i can do this task.



You will need to use an XML parser to read the files for processing. If you are using J2SE5.0 or above, JAXP provides built-in XML libraries. If you are using earlier versions of Java, you will need to download a parser such as JDOM or Xerces (easily found with Google). If you use JAXP, you can find many tutorials on processing XML in Java at http://java.sun.com/webservices/jaxp/learning/tutorial/index.html
