Java delete non-empty folders

The Java File.delete(); method only works on empty folders to delete a folder and its contents recursivly do some thing like:

   public static void recDelete(File folder) {
if(folder.exists()) {
if(folder.isDirectory()) {
File[] files = folder.listFiles();
for(int i=0; i < files.length; i++) {
File curFile = files[i];
// call to delete the current file/folder
//If a folder Deleted all contents
//If a File Jump straight here
