How do I get the file extension of a file in Java?

Just to be clear, I’m not looking for the MIME type.

Let’s say I have the following input: /path/to/file/foo.txt

I’d like a way to break this input up, specifically into .txt for the extension. Is there any built in way to do this in Java? I would like to avoid writing my own parser.
