Here’s an example to get the temporary file path in Java.

Example

package com.mkyong.file;
 
import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
 
public class GetTempFilePathExample
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {	
 
    	try{
 
    		//create a temp file
    		File temp = File.createTempFile("temp-file-name", ".tmp"); 
 
    		System.out.println("Temp file : " + temp.getAbsolutePath());
 
		//Get tempropary file path
    		String absolutePath = temp.getAbsolutePath();
    		String tempFilePath = absolutePath.
    		    substring(0,absolutePath.lastIndexOf(File.separator));
 
    		System.out.println("Temp file path : " + tempFilePath);
 
    	}catch(IOException e){
 
    		e.printStackTrace();
 
    	}
 
    }
}

Result

Temp file : C:\Users\mkyong\AppData\Local\Temp\temp-file-name79456440.tmp
Temp file path : C:\Users\mkyong\AppData\Local\Temp
