I want to open a "DIRECTORY CHOOSER" instead of JFileChooser so that user may choose the destination directory for output. how can i?


The difference between <b>failure</b> and <b>success</b> is often being <b>right</b> and being <b>exactly right</b>.

I found this for you.
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/filechooser.html

so JFileChooser could be a good tool to use.

perhaps all you need to do with your current JFileChooser is this

fileChooser.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.DIRECTORIES_ONLY);
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
