File Split in Java Program

Java

Java split file into multiple files, this File Split in Java Program code can be used to merge and split files in different sizes depending on your requirement.
Pre-Req:
— Make Sure you have java already installed. Minimum Java version required is 1.4.2.x and above.

To Split A File into Upload Size Slices:

For Splitting:

java Splitme -s <filepath> <Split file size in Mb>

Example: java Splitme -s /tmp/temp.zip 1024

Note: Here 1024 is in MB the file splitting size.

For joining:

java Splitme -j <Path To file.sp>

Example: java Splitme -j tmp/temp.zip1.sp


Splitme.java – Compile it to class file to execute – Use Javac

    Thanks.. found the needful..

  2. I really like that you are giving information on core and advance java concepts. Being enrolled at course/1779-core-and-advance-java-concepts I found your information very helpful indeed.thanks for it.

    I got a question like bwlow so posting it here so that other people will get benefited :

    My name is Eddy. I found your java program for split and join files. I splited succsesfull but when I tryied to join the files I had some problems.

    The problems is that the pogram only join one sp file

    example:

    java Splitme -j C:\TrabajoFinal\Destino\Centos.iso.1.sp

    the result is a Centos.iso but It only take the first file.

    Coud you help me please.

    Probable Solution:

    It might not be finding all the splitted files in the current path.

    cd to C:\TrabajoFinal\Destino\ folder and now try to join with below command
    java Splitme -j Centos.iso.1.sp
