Fetching the name of the current working directory with Java 7+

Paths.get("").toAbsolutePath().getFileName() returns the name of the current directory:

    import java.nio.file.Path;
    import java.nio.file.Paths;
    import static org.hamcrest.CoreMatchers.is;
    import static org.junit.Assert.assertThat;
    import org.junit.Test;
    public class AppTest {
        public void currentFolderFolderName() {
            String expected = "[CURRENT WORKING DIRECTORY NAME]";
            Path currentPath = Paths.get("").toAbsolutePath().getFileName();
            assertThat(currentPath.toString(), is(expected));

If you launch the test in directory: "/duke/work/coolness", currentPath will yield coolness.
