"FileView defines an abstract class that can be implemented to provide the filechooser with UI information for a File. Each L&F JFileChooserUI object implements this class to pass back the correct icons and type descriptions specific to that L&F. For example, the Microsoft Windows L&F returns the generic Windows icons for directories and generic files."

What does L&F mean?
