It used the URL class ( http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/net/URL.html#toURI%28%29). I've attached example code based on the stackoverflow solution, Test.java. Even though the toString() invocation still shows the "%20", you can see from the output below that it runs correctly: Does file:/tmp/some%20dir exist? false Does file:/tmp/some%20dir exist? true Does file:/tmp/bogus%20dir exist? false Does file:/tmp/bogus%20dir exist? false ("/tmp/some dir" was an actual file whereas, naturally, "/tmp/bogus dir" was not.) > > > One more question.
