> > I can not get these methods to work. They do not do anything to the files that they are supposed to rename or delete and they both return false. Also, all the files are within the same directory as the application. Am I doing something wrong? Here's some sample code:

> > File destFile = new File(String new_name);
> > source.renameTo(destFile);

> //I have a Button("source directory") in my programm, i choose a Directory(source) from (FileChooser)
> //I put a new_name in a InputField, I have Button ("Ok")
> //I want the same File(source), but with the another name( new_name) which i put
> //after Compiling i becom--> Error (System FileNotFoundException)

> > Please help!
