I guess you are looking for the File.list(...) method.

Thank you all 4 for your reply.....but i still not get my answer as i want to know how to browse for complete folder rather than single file....


JFileChooser() is for choosing a file not a folder

Sorry to nitpick, but UseRealWords: "for", not "4".

Not if you set the file selection mode to JFileChooser.DIRECTORIES_ONLY or JFileChooser.FILES_AND_DIRECTORIES; the default is JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY.

If you click on the JFileChooser words around this thread you will open up its Javadoc page. At the top there's a link with label "How to Use File Choosers". Click on it and read the page you're redirected to.
