    I though you didn't WANT it to be found, your original post isn't clear
    public boolean searchWord(String text, String word){
       boolean wordFound = false; 
       StringTokenizer stkn = new StringTokenizer(text," ");
       while(stkn.hasMoreTokens() ){
          String tmp = stkn.nextToken;
          if(tmp.equals(word)) wordFound = true;

  • How to find out the end of the file in java

    hi friends,
    I am reading a file char by char. So how can I check for end of the file. I va a integer of the character and a string which has hex value of the character.
    but when I execute the pgm, it shows out of memory error. overflow of the heap.
    can anyone help???
    thanks in advance...

    There is no "type of file". It's all zeroes andones.
    thing is am wrintin a file. I want to set the
    type(extension) to be .iso. how can i do that???If you want to make the extension ".iso" then just end the file name with ".iso".
    If you want to make the "type" iso, so that it can be manipulated by an iso application or whatever, then you have to make sure the bytes you write are of the proper format.
    As already stated: Files don't have a type.

  • How to read some lines from a text file using java.

    i m new to java and i want to read some lines from a text file based on some string occurrence in the file. This file to be read in steps.
    we only want to read the file upto the first Occurrence of "TEXT" string.
    How to do it ,,,
    Kinldy give the code
    this is the text file
    hjkdgh TEXT
    tyk TEXT

    Hendawy wrote:
    Since the word "TEXT" is formed of 4 letters, you would read the text file 4 bytes by four bytes. Wrong on two counts. First, the file may not be encoded 1 byte per character. It could be utf-16 in which case it would be two byte per character. Second, even if it were 1 byte per character, the string "Text" may not start on a 4 byte boundary.
    Consider a FileInputStream object "fis" that points to your text file. use[] array, int offset, int len) to read every four bytes. Convert the "TEXT" String into a byte array "TEXT".getBytes(), and yous the Arrays class to compare the equality of the read bytes with your "TEXT".getBytes()Wrong since it relies on my second point and will fail when[] array, int offset, int len) does not read 4 bytes (as is no guaranteed to). Check the Javadoc. Also, the file may not be encoded with the default character encoding.
    The problem is easily solved by reading a line at a time using a BufferedReader wrapping an InputStreamReader wrapping a FileInputStream and specifying the correct character encoding.

    Using XPath to locate the elements you are after is very easy.
    Try something like this:
    import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;
    import javax.xml.transform.Transformer;
    import javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory;
    import javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource;
    import javax.xml.xpath.XPath;
    import javax.xml.xpath.XPathConstants;
    import javax.xml.xpath.XPathFactory;
    import org.w3c.dom.Document;
    import org.w3c.dom.NodeList;
    import org.xml.sax.InputSource;
    public class BasicXMLReplaceWithDOM4J {
         static String inputFile = "C:/student.xml";
         static String outputFile = "C:/studentRenamed.xml";
         public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
              // Read xml and build a DOM document
              Document doc = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance()
                        .newDocumentBuilder().parse(new InputSource(inputFile));
              // Use XPath to find all nodes where student is named 'Suresh'
              XPath xpath = XPathFactory.newInstance().newXPath();
              NodeList nodes = (NodeList)xpath
                   .evaluate("//stud_name[text()='Suresh']", doc, XPathConstants.NODESET);
              // Rename these nodes
              for (int idx = 0; idx < nodes.getLength(); idx++) {
              // Write the DOM document to the file
              Transformer xformer = TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer();
              xformer.transform(new DOMSource(doc), new StreamResult(new File(outputFile)));

  • I want to find a particular word in a file

    I have got the contents of a file in a ArrayList using :
    String name = null;
         ArrayList<String> myArrayStrings = new ArrayList<String>();Then got a word using : myArrayStrings.get(r) This word was generated randomly and in a loop so I dont know what this word is going to be.
    Now I want to search this "myArrayStrings.get(r)" in another file. How to do that?

    Now I want to search this "myArrayStrings.get(r)" in another file. How to do that?Store the returned String. Do the same thing you did to read the first file to read the second file (i.e. read it in line-by-line and store the lines in a list). Then check if that list contains the String you stored from the first list.
    E.g. (using your code):
    String name = myArrayStrings.get(r); // assuming r is initialized somewhere before this
    if ( otherList.contains( name ) ) { // assuming otherList is your second list
        // do something

  • How to find out the status of a file in java

    I have an application that writes xml files anytime it is invoked. I am writing all unique files to a windows directory.
    i also have an ftp client working on that directory that scans all the files and sends them to the server every few minutes.
    I want to find a way using which all the files except the one that is being currently written by the application are transferred.
    Is there a way to find out in java as to what file is being written to by the operating system at that point of time ? I have looked around for quite a long time and have not been able to find a solution to this problem.
    Any help will be deeply appreciated.

    out = new FileOutputStream(".open" , true);
                          FileChannel ch = out.getChannel();
                                       FileLock lock =  ch.lock(0L, Long.MAX_VALUE, false);
                                   // Connect print stream to the output stream          
                                       p = new PrintStream( out );
                            p.println ("\n" + parms.getProperty( value ) + "\n");
                                  lock.release();Ok, I tried implementing locks but I dont know why it is not working...An exception is thrown and nothing is wriiten to the file. I have employed a complete lock on the file so that no other JVM application can use it.
    Actually this is a server that grabs data sent from an Iframe and writes it down to a temp file. I open a file input stream, lock it and then use a printwriter strream to write the realyed data to the file. Any inputs as to what is wrong with the code snippet above?????

  • How to find a specific word in sentence in each line?

    How to find a specific word in sentence in each line and output will show start from the beginning from specific word plus with small description from each sentence?
    For example: I need to find a "+Wednesday+" and "+Thursday+" word in each sentence by line by line from "myfile.txt".
    Go ballet class next Wednesday.
    On the Wednesday is going to swim class.
    We have a meeting on Thursday at Panda's.
    Then it will show the output:
    Wednesday : ballet class
    Wednesday : swim class
    Thursday: meeting at Panda's
    I am going to figure out in Java console to read from a file for specific word from each line and how to make it output in correct way. I know already to make input/file codes.

    I got it and understand much better. Thank you very much. There is a problem with it because I knew how to make
    a specific word in sentence but how I should make Output for specific word and some words from sentence.
    For example:
    +"On Thursday go to ballet class"+
    +"Swim class on Friday one time a month at 2 p.m."+
    I used the codes for that:
    class FindSchedule{
         String firstline = "On Thursday go to ballet class ";
         String secondline = "Swim class on Friday one time a month ";
              System.out.println(firstline + findTheIndex("Thursday", firstline));
              System.out.println(secondline + findTheIndex("Friday", secondline));
         public int findTheIndex(String word, String sentence){
              int index;
              index = sentence.indexOf(word);
              return index;
         public static void main (String[] args){
              new FindSchedule();
    }The output will be:
    Thursday: ballet class
    Friday: 14:00 swim class one time a week
    Notice that time is changing in output complete different from input.
    I need to find out how to extract some words from each sentence for output. Do you know how to do it?

    Hello COTI
    Unfortunatly, SAP MDM doesn't have good ability for  WF search.
    All WF clarify by it's status (unlaunched, avialable, Received, complited, error  etc.)
    For each WF SAP MDM assing unique Job ID and this id will be shown in Job ID field in Data Manager WF Tab.
    You can change WF list order by all WF fields like as Job ID, Step, User, Start etc. and try to find your's WF.
    You can use Java API - this is one of the best solution for WF management and WF mass upload  (for example)
