    Red face Moving file to another folder

    Hi forum,

    I am a newbie to java. I'm stuck with this problem. I would like to move list of files from one folder to another folder. Can anyone give me a head start...Below is my code but this only moves a single file. How can i move multiple files?? Interate??Array??

    If you know a tutorial about this, please provide the hyperlink.

    Java Code:
     public static void moveFile() {
           try {
               // File (or Directory) to be moved
              File cFile = new File("C:/FolderA/[B]file.txt[/B]");
              // Destination directory
              File dir = new File("C:/FolderB");
              // Move file to a new directory
              boolean success = cFile.renameTo(new File(dir, cFile.getName()));
                System.out.println("Success::"+cFile.renameTo(new File(dir, cFile.getName())));
                if (success) {
                    System.out.println("File was successfully moved.\n");
                } else {
                    System.out.println("File was not successfully moved.\n");
            } catch (Exception ex) {
