    Hi Karma,

    I think you'd do it something like:

    Java Code:
      File dir = new File ("d:/javafile/");
      String [] javafiles = dir.list(filter);
        for (int i = 0; i < strs.length; i++) {
          System.err.println (strs[i]);
    And for filtering only *.java files, you can use the following filter:

    Java Code:
    FilenameFilter filter = new FilenameFilter() {
      public boolean accept(File dir, String name) {
        return name.endsWith(".java");
