My assignment requires that I use exception handling to create a directory and file if necessary.
I was able to create a C:Data\inventory.dat file, provided that there's an existing Data folder (directory) in my C: drive; however, I have a feeling that the assignment wants me to create an actual Data folder if one is not available. When I remove the Data folder from my C: drive, I get "C:\data\inventory.dat (The system cannot find the path specified)".
How am I to create able a folder that currently does not exist? I'm reading the java.sun website on the File class, the mkdirs methods, and the FileSystemView class; however, I'm having trouble implementing the requirements in my code (I wish API documentation was more understandable to me.). Can an example be provided? Thank you everyone.
