Here are some questions
1) what is difference between getPath() and getAbsolutePath() in file handling ?
2) what is difference between Reserve word or Keyword in JAVA and how many keywords are there in java ?
3) where can we get exercises or assignments of different java topics, just for practice ?

Here are some answers:
1) getPath() returns the abstract pathname and getAbsolutePath() returns the full pathname.
example. try this to see for yourself:

2) Both Keywords and reserved words cannot be used as identifiers. The difference is keywords have special meaning in the language and reserved don't. There are 46 keywords and 2 reserved words.

Good answers above, but I would say that getPath() returns a "relative" path. Here's a mock example from a unix web server:
f.getPath() == "images/photo.jpg"
f.getAbsolutePath() == "/usr/httpd/images/photo.jpg"
The first one shows the path from the current working directory, while the second is the entire path from the root of the hard drive.
I agree. Here's the link:
