Hi,

Using the following code I try to create a new directory on a
Windows platform.
I end up with a subdirectory of my user directory C:/test/MyData
instead of C:/MyData

String dirName = "C:\\MyData";
File dir = new File(dirName);
if(!dir.exists)
dir.mkdir();
Has this something to do with relative paths and absolute paths?
Would anybody help me to understand what is my error?
Thanks,
Alex


 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
