How do I touch a file?

This example demonstrate a touch command just like Unix touch command. If the file to be touched doesn’t exist a new empty file will be created.




public class TouchFileExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            File file = new File("Touch.dat");

            // Touch the file, when the file is not exist a new file will be
            // created. If the file exist change the file timestamp.
        } catch (IOException e) {
