Hi all,
I was asked to write a desktop application to access a local file system and to be able to return the path of a selected directory. Does anyone have any idea how i can do this?

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please choose a new name which meets the requirements.
Check out this thread on directory selection:

Thanks.

I just reread your question. I don't think this answers it. The below cose only allows you to open a file.
