How to move a file from one folder to another using Java

This is very simple yet tricky. Java has several ways to do it. Below is the easiest one to remember.

public class MoveFile
    public static void main(String[] args)
        File file = new File("C:\\tobo\\input\\");
        // The trick is to move the file via renaming it to other location
           (new File("C:\\tobo\\output\\")))
            System.out.println("File has been moved successfully");
            System.out.println("File could not be moved to new location");

This is a very simple code. But extensively used.

Happy Coding.
