How can I rename a file in Java?

How can I rename a file from Java.io?

File temporaryFile = File.createTempFile();

temporaryFile.renameTo(newfileName);

And if newfileName is exists then its fails.

How do I do a force rename?

public void forceRename(File source, File target) throws IOException

{
   if (target.exists()) target.delete();
   source.renameTo(target)
}
