Submitted by IncludeHelp, on July 19, 2019

The task is to create directory along with required nonexistent directories.

To create directory along with required nonexistent directory, we use mkdirs() method which is a predefined method of "File" class, it is called with the file object which is being initialized with the directories (along with the path) and returns a Boolean value – "true" if directories created successfully, otherwise it returns "false".

Package to use: import java.io.*;

Syntax:

    // create File object with directories
    File dirs = new File("C://course//semester1//programming//java");

    //method call to create directories
    dirs.mkdirs();

    Output:
    true

Java code to create directory along with required nonexistent parent directories

// Java code to create directory along with required 
// nonexistent parent directories

import java.io.*;

public class CreateDIRwithParentDIRs {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    // create File object with directories
    File dirs = new File("C://course//semester1//programming//java");

    // variable to store result 
    // and method call to create directories
    boolean result = dirs.mkdirs();

    if (result)
      System.out.println("Directories created sucessfully...");
    else
      System.out.println("Error occured...");
  }
}

Output

Directories created sucessfully...
