I've been working on what I thought should be a simple issue, but it's been driving me nuts for 2 days. :-P Doh!
What I need is:
To take the name of a file that is being passed from another page.
Check it against the filesystem, regardless of case.
Return the name of the file that is in the filesystem that matches the passed filename, Upper/Lower-case notwithstanding.
What I have so far is:
And, of course, this returns *everything* in that directory. If I try to use a passed-in variable, I get "Cannot refer to a non-final variable procname inside an inner class defined in a different method"
So, is there a simple way to get the FilenameFilter to do the comparison for me, or do I have to keep checking against the String Array it produces?

That did it! And, it once again proves that old adage of programming; "The longer you work on a problem, the simpler the resolution will be."
@Paul: If we get to that page, then there shouldn't be any way that procname would be empty or null, but I don't count on that. Thanks much!
And, @Bear: I was not the one who started the project, but it is in my hands to support it until we can get it switched to something more current (READ: more inline with current standards.).
Ummm... I'll just leave it at that. ;-p hehe
