So you want to select a directory? Looking at the Java API documentation for javax.swing.JFileChooser, you'll see there's a method setFileSelectionMode:

public void setFileSelectionMode(int mode)

Sets the JFileChooser to allow the user to just select files, just select directories, or select both files and directories. The default is JFilesChooser.FILES_ONLY.

mode - the type of files to be displayed:

* JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY

IllegalArgumentException - if mode is an illegal file selection mode
