URL getFile() method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 31 Dec, 2018

The getFile() function is a part of URL class. The function getFile() returns the file name of a specified URL. The getFile() function returns the path and the query of the URL.

Function Signature:

public String getFile()

Syntax:

url.getFile()

Parameter: This function does not require any parameter

Return Type: The function returns String Type



Below programs illustrates the use of getFile() function:

Example 1: Given a URL we will get the file using the getFile() function.




// Java program to show the
// use of the function getFile()
  
import java.net.*;
  
class Solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // url  object
        URL url = null;
  
        try {
  
            // create a URL
            url = new URL(
                "https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples/");
  
            // get the  File
            String _File = url.getFile();
  
            // display the URL
            System.out.println("URL = " + url);
  
            // display the  File
            System.out.println(" File= " + _File);
        }
  
        // if any error occurs
        catch (Exception e) {
  
            // display the error
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
URL = https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples/
 File= /url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples/

Example 2: Now see how getFile() is different from getPath(). getPath() will exclude the query but getFile() will include the query




// Java program to show the
// use of the function getFile()
  
import java.net.*;
  
class Solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // url  object
        URL url = null;
  
        try {
  
            // create a URL
            url = new URL(
                "https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples?title=protocol");
  
            // get the  File
            String _File = url.getFile();
  
            // display the URL
            System.out.println("URL = " + url);
  
            // display the  File
            System.out.println(" File= " + _File);
        }
  
        // if any error occurs
        catch (Exception e) {
  
            // display the error
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
URL = https:// www.geeksforgeeks.org/url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples?title=protocol
 File= /url-getprotocol-method-in-java-with-examples?title=protocol
