Java Question

How can i write a proper path to save files in java?

I have made an application to save customer invoices in shared folder
so first in my desktop-pc I have created a folder and named as "PDFINVOICES" in D: drive.

and I have made that folder to accessible for everyone.
Folder right click->properties->sharing->advance sharing & also in security tab as well

and I have changed my application path as

//Original path

String path = "docs/" + pdfFilename;


//Changed path

String path = "file://172.21.1.91/PDFINVOICES/" + pdfFilename;


and when i run it, it gives an error
called


java.io.FileNotFoundException: file:\172.21.1.91\PDFINVOICES\222016-08-23.pdf (The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect)


Previously it worked nicely with original path.
After i changed it, it doesn't work.

Answer

Just quess but try:

String path = "\\\\172.21.1.91\\PDFINVOICES\\" + pdfFilename;
