How to filter the files by file extensions and show the file names?


Description:

Below example shows how to get specific files from a folder. Sometimes we need to pic only specific extensions from the given folder. Implement FilenameFilter class and override accept() method, and add your filter logic here. Pass this object to list() method to get specific file extensions.


Code:
package com.java2novice.files;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.FilenameFilter;

public class MyFileFilter {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		File file = new File("C:/MyFolder/");
		String[] files = file.list(new FilenameFilter() {
			
			@Override
			public boolean accept(File dir, String name) {
				if(name.toLowerCase().endsWith(".csv")){
					return true;
				} else {
					return false;
				}
			}
		});
		for(String f:files){
			System.out.println(f);
		}
	}
}

What is java static import?
By using static imports, we can import the static members from a class rather than the classes from a given package. For example, Thread class has static sleep method, below example gives an idea:

import static java.lang.Thread;
public class MyStaticImportTest {
public static void main(String[] a) {
try{
sleep(100);
} catch(Exception ex){

}
}
}
