    Default Re: how can i get directory path without select any file ?

    You could set the path of the class containing the main() method with

    File startingDir = new File(ClassWithMain.class.getProtectionDomain().get CodeSource().getLocation().getPath());

    Instead of ClassWithMain you can use an other class in your project root or a reachable class in the classpath.
