Creating a Link to a File in Java

There are times when we need to reflect the changes made to a file in a different file as well. Mostly, they are made available in a common place so that you do not have to navigate to multiple folders looking for them. This idea is supported by Java using the concept of link creation.

Now, in the example below, linkedFile.txt will always reflect the changes made to source.txt:

import java.nio.file.*;import*;public class CreateLink{   public static void main(String args[])   {      CreateLink createLink = new CreateLink();      createLink.proceed();   }   private void proceed()   {      //The linkedFile will be linked to currentFile and will reflect any changes made to it      Path linkedFile = Paths.get("C:\AdvJava\linkedFile.txt");       //The file that is the origin      Path currentFile = Paths.get("C:\AdvJava\source.txt");      try {         //Creating a link          Files.createLink(linkedFile, currentFile);      } catch (IOException ioe) {         System.out.println(ioe);      } catch (UnsupportedOperationException uoe) {         System.out.println(uoe);      }   }   }
