Tips in reading cd content in java?


Hi Caroline,

At first you should mount a directory which user is accessing in OS linux. You can mount it like following :

Process MountSpace = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(Command)

And after that try to open the file which you want to access, i.e like this

File cd = new File( "/dev/SR0/tk1.mp3" );


Hope this will help.

This is the correct way to list all files in a directory. Replace [PATH] with your desired directory:

Path dir = …;

try (DirectoryStream[PATH] stream = Files.newDirectoryStream(dir)) {

     for (Path file: stream) {



} catch (IOException | DirectoryIteratorException x) {

      // IOException can never be thrown by the iteration.

      // In this snippet, it can only be thrown by newDirectoryStream. System.err.println(x); }

New versions of Java include specialized ways to list contents of a directory in more ways.
