In this article, we would like to show you how to check that file is exists using Java.

Quick solution:

import java.io.File;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        File file = new File("C:\\projects\\file.txt");

        if (file.exists()) {
            System.out.println("File exists.");
        } else {
            System.out.println("File does not exists.");
        }
    }
}

Another example

import java.io.File;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        File file = new File("C:\\projects\\file.txt");
        System.out.println("Is file exists: " + file.exists());
    }
}

Practical example

Projects structure

 C/
 |
 +- projects/
     |
     +- file.txt

Code

import java.io.File;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        File file = new File("C:\\projects\\file.txt");
        File anotherFile = new File("C:\\projects\\anotherFile.txt");

        System.out.println("Is file.txt exists:        " + file.isFile());
        System.out.println("Is anotherFile.txt exists: " + anotherFile.isFile());
    }
}

Output:

Is file.txt exists:        true
Is anotherFile.txt exists: false
