Get File Size


In this Tutorial, we want to describe you a code that helps you in understanding  Get File Size. For this we have a class name" Get File Size" Inside the main method  we have -

Input Stream Reader This is used to decode a byte code and convert the byte code to a character stream.
Buffered Reader This is used to read a character stream from a file.

We declare a string variable path assigned to memory. The System.out.println is used to print the path. In the Try block readline ( ) method provides you to read the file and store in  a path variable. Incase there is an exception occurred in a try block, the catch block followed by the try block to handle the exception. Otherwise we declare file variable name dir and assigned to a memory by passing path as argument. The dir variable call a list method return you a list of files  and store in a string array file list. We display the list of array file using for loop. Now in order to evaluate the size of file we use.isfile( ),returns you the size of file present in bytes by placing in the conditional operator if clause.


public class GetFileSize {

  public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {

  InputStreamReader streamReader = new InputStreamReader(;
  BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(streamReader);
  String path = new String();
  System.out.println("Path : ");
  try {
  path = br.readLine();
  catch (Exception e) {

  File dir = new File(path);
  String[] fileList = dir.list();
  File file;
  for (int i = 0; i < fileList.length; i++) {
  file = new File(fileList[i]);
  if (file.isFile()) {
  System.out.println(file.getName() +
  " : " + file.length() " Bytes");

Path :  .
build.xml : 3367 Bytes : 85 Bytes
text.txt : 93 Bytes
