I am just wondering, is there any API function I can call that would return me an array/enumeration of all the files in this directory as well as the sub directory that has the same extension
I am in C:\test directory,
I would like to have a list of files that ends in .xml in the C:\test directory as well as its subdirectory.
Please let me know

check out java.io.File and java.io.FileFilter. You must create a FileFilter and pass it in to the File.listFiles method. This will give you your listing of the files that you want.

FileIterator I wrote
might help you if you need to search subdirectories as well. If not, File#listFiles(FilenameFilter filter) is the better choice.
I agree. Here's the link:
