  • method not foundkapella September 7, 2011 at 2:58 AM

    I am trying to use this example about checking if a file exists. It seems like my compiler is not finding the method 'exists()' since it is asking me to create a class with the same name. Thank you.

  • Thanks for your post: trueJevgenijs March 4, 2012 at 6:27 AM

    if (!exists) { System.out.println("the file or directory you are searching does exist : " + exists); does exists? FALSE mens not exists } else { System.out.println("the file or directory you are searching does exist : " + exists); does exists? TRUE mens exists it's about logic, as i know when you code on java you need to write it like a book :D but thanks for your post Helped me a lot. i'm now on Java courses!
