Creating Folder/Directory if Doesn't Exist using Java

In some cases we may like to save a file inside a folder, in this case the application may result an error if the Folder/Directory is not available in the application directory. To over come this we can better create a folder with the name as per our wish.
This simple code first checks if the Folder/Directory with the desired name exists or not. If there is no such Folder/Directory then the code will create one Folder/Directory with the name defined.
