Below programs illustrate isAbsolute() method:
Program 1:






// Java program to demonstrate
// java.nio.file.Path.isAbsolute() method
  
import java.io.IOException;
import java.nio.file.Path;
import java.nio.file.Paths;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IOException
    {
  
        // create an object of Path
        Path path
            = Paths.get("D:\\eclipse\\configuration"
                        + "\\org.eclipse.update");
  
        // call isAbsolute() to get check
        // path is absolute or not
        boolean isAbsolute = path.isAbsolute();
  
        // print isAbsolute
        System.out.println("Path is Absolute: "
                           + isAbsolute);
    }
}
Output:

Program 2:

public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IOException

        Path path = Paths.get("temp\\Spring");
  
        // call isAbsolute() to get check
        // path is absolute or not
