Java I/O – Get parent directory of the file or directory

getParent() and getParentFile() Methods

In Java File class a member method getParent() returns the path name string of the parent directory named by this abstract path name, or null if this pathname does not name a parent.
getParentFile(): Returns the parent directory as a File object, or null if this File object does not have a parent.
Lets take an example to understand the method in a better way. In this example we will construct the file path using File constructor.
