It's all explained in the javadoc for java.io.File.

Say you have this:
File f = new File("./folder1/folder2");

f.mkdir() will create only folder2 and only if folder1 already exists on the specified path
f.mkdirs() will create the entire path: if folder1 doesn't exist it will create it and the it will create the subfolder folder2
