Hi,

Can anyone tell the difference between the methods getAbsolutePath() and getAbsoluteFile() in the File class because i get the same result for both the methods.

here is my code snippet

import java.io.*;

class FileDemo
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
try
{
File f = new File("file.txt");
System.out.println(f.getAbsolutePath());
System.out.println(f.getAbsoluteFile());
}
catch(Exception e)
{

}

}
}


The result i get in both these cases is

D:\java progs\io\file.txt
D:\java progs\io\file.txt

A quick look at the javadocs will show you that getAbsoluteFile returns a File object, while getAbsolutePath returns a String.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
