Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-77) [io] add a convenience FileUtils.move(File src, File dest)
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2008 18:12:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-77?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12556645#action_12556645

Stephen Colebourne commented on IO-77:
--------------------------------------

The answer to this is not to start a holy war, but to evaluate what the rest of [io] does
now, and apply the consistency rule. IIRC that means NPE, but my memory could be faulty.

(please bear in mind that commons-io is written, like lang and collections, to simulate the
behaviour of the JDK itself in many respects)

> I'm using FileUtils as it partially solves the missing "move" method for File,
> that is so simple to do in unix shell.
> A full implementation in FileUtils may be great :
> static boolean FileUtils.move(File src, File dest)
> throws IOException
> {
>     boolean rename = src.renameTo(dest);
>     if (!rename)
>     {
>         copyFile(file, dest);
>         file.delete();
>     }
> }
