Returns As a String The Complete Path To The Current (Working) Directory


The method shown below returns as a String the complete path to the current (working) directory. This can be useful to know because default files(including property files) are read from and written to the current (working) directory.
 
    public static String getCurrentDirectory() {
       String sFilePath = (new
File("junk")).getAbsolutePath(); // example:
D:\foo\FG_Project_Code\junk
       String sPathOnly = sFilePath.substring(0,
(sFilePath.length() - 4 ) ); // example:
D:\foo\FG_Project_Code\
       return sPathOnly;
    }
