Can java.io.File create symbolic links in UNIX?


Is there a way for java.io.File, or any other class is J2SE 1.1.x and above to create UNIX symbolic links?


Thanks.

No. This is a UNIX specific thing. Windows can not create symbolic links and that is why Java does not support symbolic links. You can however create a symbolic link by starting an external process. This would make the application platform specific.
