Java - convert File to Path

In this short article, I would like to share how to get Path from File in java. It is quite easy, but is a common problem :)

To solve this problem we just need to call file.toPath() method on File object. Note that this method was added in java 1.7.

Full working example:

import java.io.File;
import java.nio.file.Path;

public class FileToPathExample {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        File file = new File("C:\\examples");

        Path path = file.toPath();

        // ...
    }
}

Before java 1.7

Before java 1.7 we could convert File to Path like this:

import java.io.File;
import java.nio.file.FileSystems;
import java.nio.file.Path;

public class FileToPathExample2 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        File file = new File("C:\\examples");

        Path path = FileSystems.getDefault().getPath(file.getPath());

        // ...
    }
}
