Awesome, this post has almost everything covered around file I/O along with a lot of supplement stuff. However, addressing a few more topics like md5/sha1 hashing, retrieving file time-stamp would have made it more meaningful.

Hi all,

I am a new to java. I am trying to set up the environment with Java, git, Jenkins and maven by mentioning the IP address of linux VM. I have written a code to connect to VM, create folders, and move files to folders. Now I want to install all Java and others software programmatically. Ib tried to install Java using yum -y install java-1.7.0. There is no error but then Java is not installed. Please suggest what needs to be done so that Java gets installed and java_home path is set programmatically.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Karthik

how ternary operator used in java

kamleshdhare
Guest
kamleshdhare

Ternary operator is best alternative for if-else
For example:

int age=19;
String canvote=(age>=18)?”yes,you can vote”:”you cant vote”;
System.out.println(canvote);
OUTPUT:

There are three part of ternary operator:
(Condition)?truepart:falsepart

1. Condition- any boolean expression
2. True part- if condition evalute true so assign this value left hand side.
3. False part- if condition evalute false so assign this value left hand side.

OUTPUT: yes, you can vote
