Utility methods for files used in batch processing.

public final class FileUtils {

Set up output file for batch processing. This method implements common logic for handling output files when starting or restarting file I/O. When starting output file processing, creates/overwrites new file. When restarting output file processing, checks whether file is writable.

file file to be set up
restarted true signals that we are restarting output file processing
overwriteOutputFile If set to true, output file will be overwritten (this flag is ignored when processing is restart)
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException when file is null
org.springframework.batch.item.ItemStreamException when starting output file processing, file exists and flag "overwriteOutputFile" is set to false
org.springframework.batch.item.ItemStreamException when unable to create file or file is not writable
	public static void setUpOutputFile(File fileboolean restartedboolean overwriteOutputFile) {

					if (!file.delete()) {

				if (!file.exists()) {

		catch (IOException ioe) {
			throw new ItemStreamException("Unable to create file: [" + file.getAbsolutePath() + "]"ioe);
