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 java.io.IOException;

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


Expected output:

[root@mypc]# java FileTimeEx
Timestamp of the file: 2019-05-28T07:07:07.773728Z
