Copying File From One Location to Another Location

Description

This program shows how to copy a file from one location to another location using java code. Any source file can be chosen from JFileChooser and target location to copy the file can also be chosen. Two code executing in a same port is required for file copying. File is read as byte array and written into OutputStream. File content is read as bytes from InputStream and stored in a file with the same name as source file.
