    How to check whether a file got read permissions for perticular user

    807605
      Problem: Let JRE is running with some x as effective user in LINUX then while checking file permission it is checking permission on that file for that x user.

      File f = new File(�file name�)
      if(f.exists())
      {
           System.out.println(�exists�);
      }
      Else
      {
           System.out.println(�does not exists�);
      }
      The above code prints exists only when x user have permissions on that file

      Requirement: I would like to check whether a file got read permissions for particular user i.e. whether y user got permissions on that file.

      Any help is appreciated
