How do I copy file?

This example demonstrates how to copy file using the Java IO library. Here we will use the java.io.FileInputStream and it’s tandem the java.io.FileOutputStream class.

package org.kodejava.example.io;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

public class FileCopyDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Create an instance of source and destination files
        File source = new File("source.pdf");
        File destination = new File("target.pdf");

        try (FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(source);
             FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(destination)) {
            // Define the size of our buffer for buffering file data
            byte[] buffer = new byte[4096];
            int read;
            while ((read = fis.read(buffer)) != -1) {
                fos.write(buffer, 0, read);
            }
        } catch (IOException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}
