From your code, I'm betting there's an error message being printed out. What does it say?

In general, using e.getMessage() is a poor way to print an exception. The problem is that it can lose important information, such as the name of the exception class, and the stack trace. You will be better off if you use e.printStackTrace() instead, which also includes the message and class name. Or if you use a logging framework (like log4j, highly recommended), use one of the logging methods that takes a Throwable as a parameter.

Also, please indent your code to make it more readable. People here will be much more likely to read it if it's in a familiar format.

"loly party",

Please read your private messages regarding an important announcement.

Thank you,

Rob

Now, getting back to your problem. I think the cause is in this line:

loly party wrote:FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream(filename);


filename is just the name of the file; e.g. Document1.txt. It no longer contains the path information. Therefore, it will only work if there is a file with the same name in the folder you are executing your application from.

If you switch to listFiles() instead of list(), you get File objects back instead of only the file names. File object do keep their full path. You can then use the FileInputStream constructor that takes a File instead of a String.

What is the type of children? Hint: it's not String[] anymore.

Based on the stack trace, on line 84 of CompareList.java, you are calling substring(), and one of the indices is 2. This index does not exist in the string, probably because it is too short. Have you tried reading the substring() API to see how the indices are used?

Now, I have no idea why you are calling substring(), since you haven't shown us. Is CompareList even the same class as you've shown us previously? Perhaps you've just renamed it? Or is this something completely new?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
