So im working on a project where im supposed to dynamically load the contents of a .csv file into the database.I have been hard coding the path of the file till now like

inserted = insertFromFile("C:/Users/Student/Desktop/Book1.csv",connection, "customer");

however now i have to read multiple files from a folder and integrate the program with a GUI. I have 2 questions:

a)how do i read multiple files from a folder b)how do i retrieve the path of a file for the insert statement

any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

You should check the File class in java.io. It has methods to get all files from a folder and the pathname of a file (plus many more of course).
