Thanks

Errata: Change

File f = new File("a,txt");

to

File f = new File("a.txt");

. After that when you write that statement, the object will start referring to a PATH which has a.txt in the end. It is not necessary that the file a.txt is present. But when you call

f.createNewFile()

then if a.txt doesn't exists, it will be created. So you can be sure that after call to createNewFile, the object f refers to a file a.txt...

Ofcourse when f.createNewFile() is called then.

File is just a class, if you call new File("filename"), it just creates an object of file class. But if you want to create filename file in the system, you have to call File.createNewFile().

Any doubt???

It will create a instance of file named �f� at the �directory� Directory on the heap.
To persist it, first you need to check - either directory folder should be there OR you need to call directory.mkdir(). And then you need to call file.createNewFile().
