    Default how to do a Windows Explorer

    Hi,

    Anybody knows which elements I have to consider to make an application like Windows Explorer to display the directories and files in a PC by clicking a directory and showing the file with its name, size and date? Or anybody knows about an exemple for it?

    Thank you

    Francisco

    PS My english is not very good, sorry.

    A good command over java GUI and java.io.File class along with java.lang.Process and Runtime should be enough to get started ..

    Or you have to start work with swing/awt components, JTree and so on. But you have to do lots of work there.
