My problem is file.exists() returns true but file.delete() fails with
"jcifs.smb.SmbException: The system cannot find the path specified.".

In my previous message, you can see the response of queryPath, which 
contains 00000000 as errorcode. 

I tried with "smb://server/sharedFolder/home/koji/test/test.txt", and
I got same result.

By the way, I found another fact.
When I can delete the file successfully, the filename parameter in the 
request of queryPath is "\folder\filename.ext" which is same as the 
filename parameter in request of delete.
And in falure case, the filename parameter of queryPath is  

Is this useful information?

Thank you for your patience.
