Java Program to Get the name of the file from the absolute path

In this example, we will learn to get the name of the file from the absolute path in Java.


Example 1: Get file name from the absolute path using getName()


import java.io.File;

class Main{

  public static void main(String[] args){

    // link to file Test.class
    File file = new File("C:\Users\Sudip Bhandari\Desktop\Programiz\Java Article\Test.class");

    // get file name using getName()
    String fileName = file.getName();
    System.out.println("File Name: " + fileName);

  }
}

Output

File Name: Test.class

In the above example, we have used the getName() method of the File class to get the name of the file.


Example 2: Get the file name using string methods

We can also get the name of the file from its absolute path using the string methods.


import java.io.File;

class Main{

  public static void main(String[] args){
    File file = new File("C:\Users\Sudip Bhandari\Desktop\Programiz\Java Article\Test.class");

    // convert the file into the string
    String stringFile = file.toString();

      int index = stringFile.lastIndexOf('\');
      if(index > 0) {
        String fileName = stringFile.substring(index + 1);
        System.out.println("File Name: " + fileName);
      }
  }
}

Output

File Name: Test.class

Two Machine Learning Fields

There are two sides to machine learning:

  • Practical Machine Learning:This is about querying databases, cleaning data, writing scripts to transform data and gluing algorithm and libraries together and writing custom code to squeeze reliable answers from data to satisfy difficult and ill defined questions. It’s the mess of reality.
  • Theoretical Machine Learning: This is about math and abstraction and idealized scenarios and limits and beauty and informing what is possible. It is a whole lot neater and cleaner and removed from the mess of reality.
