How to use FileUtils IO correctly?

I tried to use method (credits to Shenyuan Lu ):

org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.copyURLToFile(URL, File)

Precisely:

org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.copyURLToFile(driver.getCurrentUrl(), "C:\\Users\\myDocs\\myfolder\myFile.pdf");

However,Eclipse is underlining the copyURLToFile and suggesting to use copyFile. When I switch to copyFile, it suggests to use copyURLToFile again???

According to the FileUtils#copyURLToFile() API

The first parameter needs to be a URL object, and the second parameter needs to be a File Object. You are passing Strings as both args. Try…

org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.copyURLToFile(new URL(driver.getCurrentUrl()), new File("C:\\Users\\myDocs\\myfolder\\myFile.pdf"));

Also, since this method throws an exception, you either need to make your method throw an exception, or surround the statement in a try {} catch{} block.

e.g.

try {
org
.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.copyURLToFile(new URL(driver.getCurrentUrl()), new File("C:\\Users\\myDocs\\myfolder\\myFile.pdf"));
} catch (Exception x) { x.printStackTrace(); }
