Creating Temp Files Using Java

At times, you need to create temporary files to perform certain actions. The following code segment illustrates the same:

import java.io.*;

public class CreateTempFile
{
   public static void main(String args[])
   {
      CreateTempFile createTempFile = new CreateTempFile();
      createTempFile.proceed();
   }
   
   private void proceed()
   {
      try
      {
         File tempFile = File.createTempFile("FileNameStart",null); 
         //A new file with name FileNameStart.tmp will be created in the default Temp/tmp folder
         System.out.println("Temp file created and location is " + tempFile.getCanonicalPath());
      }catch(IOException ioe)
      {
         System.out.println("IOException: "+ioe);
      }
   }
}
