in order to be able to select directories, but it only allows directory selection. Not setting it only allows file selection. I wish to be able to select either a file OR a directory, which I haven't found a way to do.

I don't have a mac to test this on, but I wonder if this Look & Feel dependent? If so, then JFileChooser could work out just fine.

yes, it has the Mac look and feel (sorta) but it displays in what Mac would call "list view mode". I use a Mac and am pretty familiar with this stuff. I know LOTS of Mac users, and "column view mode" is what most of them use. (actually I can't ever remember seeing anyone NOT using column view). I've written several programs that use a file chooser, and I always use FileDialog (if the system detects a Mac) for this reason. Only thing is now I have an application that needs to have the option of selecting either a folder or file.
