How to convert a String to Path in Java

To convert a string to path, we can use the built-in java.nio.file.Paths class get() static method in Java.

Here is an example:

import java.nio.file.Path;
import java.nio.file.Paths;

public class Main
{
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String strPath = "D:/documents/music.txt";
        // converts string to path
        Path p1 = Paths.get(strPath);        System.out.println(p1);
   }
}

Output:

D:/documents/music.txt

or we can also use the Paths class get() to the join the sequence of strings to a path string like this.

Path path = Paths.get("D:", "documents", "music.txt");
// if needed
String strPath = path.toString();
System.out.println(strPath);

Output:

D:/documents/music.txt
