Get image through a file explorer and save it in an object attribute
posted 3 years ago
i'm quite new to Java and i'd need to do the following. I post here because it seems the correct section.
I need to get an image file through an explorer and save this file in an attribute of an object i already created.
Let's say i have the class Movie, in which i have the the attribute
and i create an object called movieObj, of course an istance of the Movie class.
I now want to create this file explorer (maybe i can use JFileChooser?) and i want to save in movieObj.poster the image file chosen with the explorer.
Keep in mind i want to save the actual file, not just the path.
Can i do this? Please avoid answering with lots of code lines, they are ok if they come with an explanation though. I want to understand how things work
Thanks a lot in advance, eagerly waiting for your answers.
