Enum RecursiveDeleteOption

    • Enum Constant Detail


        public static final RecursiveDeleteOption ALLOW_INSECURE
        Specifies that the recursive delete should not throw an exception when it can't be guaranteed that it can be done securely, without vulnerability to race conditions (i.e. when the file system does not support SecureDirectoryStream).

        Warning: On a file system that supports symbolic links, it is possible for an insecure recursive delete to delete files and directories that are outside the directory being deleted. This can happen if, after checking that a file is a directory (and not a symbolic link), that directory is deleted and replaced by a symbolic link to an outside directory before the call that opens the directory to read its entries. File systems that support SecureDirectoryStream do not have this vulnerability.

    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static RecursiveDeleteOption[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (RecursiveDeleteOption c : RecursiveDeleteOption.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static RecursiveDeleteOption valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
