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
