Using the FileTime Class in Java

Using the FileTime Class in Java

FileTime is a class in Java that helps you retrieve time-related information regarding files. One such method that we will see below is to get the modified time of a file in FileTime.

Code snippet:

import java.nio.file.Files;import java.nio.file.Path;import java.nio.file.Paths;import java.nio.file.attribute.FileTime;import;public class FileTimeEx{   public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException   {      FileTimeEx fileTimeEx = new FileTimeEx();      fileTimeEx.proceed();   }      private void proceed() throws IOException   {      Path filePath = Paths.get("C:/Sridhar/learn/Tips/2019/5-May/");      FileTime fileTime = Files.getLastModifiedTime(filePath);      System.out.println("Timestamp of the file: " + fileTime.toString());   }}/*

Expected output:

[root@mypc]# java FileTimeExTimestamp of the file: 2019-05-28T07:07:07.773728Z*/
