How do I use the DosFileAttributes class?

This example show you how to use the DosFileAttributes class to get file attribute that support DOS file system. This class extends the BasicFileAttributes class. Using the DosFileAttributes class we can read file attributes using isArchive(), isHidden(), isReadOnly() and isSystem() methods.

Let’s see the code snippet below:

package org.kodejava.example.io;

import java.nio.file.Files;
import java.nio.file.Path;
import java.nio.file.Paths;
import java.nio.file.attribute.DosFileAttributes;

public class DosFileAttributeExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        String path = "D:/resources/data.txt";

        Path file = Paths.get(path);
        DosFileAttributes attr = Files.readAttributes(file, DosFileAttributes.class);

        System.out.println("isArchive()  = " + attr.isArchive());
        System.out.println("isHidden()   = " + attr.isHidden());
        System.out.println("isReadOnly() = " + attr.isReadOnly());
        System.out.println("isSystem()   = " + attr.isSystem());
    }
}

The output of the code snippet:

isArchive()  = true
isHidden()   = false
isReadOnly() = true
isSystem()   = false
