Be Careful with Java Path.endsWith(String) Usage

· Java Zone

Discover how AppDynamics steps in to upgrade your performance game and prevent your enterprise from these top 10 Java performance problems, brought to you in partnership with AppDynamics.

If you need to compare the java.io.file.Path object, be aware that Path.endsWith(String) will ONLY match another sub-element of Path object in your original path, not the path name string portion! If you want to match the string name portion, you would need to call the Path.toString() first. For example

// Match all jar files.
Files.walk(dir).forEach(path -> {
if (path.toString().endsWith(".jar"))
System.out.println(path);
});


With out the "toString()" you will spend many fruitless hours wonder why your program didn't work.
