    Where have you seen those terms used? Copy and post here the references you have to them.

    What does google return when you ask it?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I got it. Absolute path is the full directory such as C:\XyzWs\java\test.txt and relative path for this is XyzWs and java.

    Post the descriptions that you don't understand and ask some questions about the problems you have.

    I wanted to take this forum as the primary source to understand things. So I first posted about those things before googling it

    I'd recommend reversing the workflow - first research, then frame what you don't understand from your research as a question in the forums.
