    So, what is it about JFileChooser that is not appropriate to what you are trying to do? It might help if you explained the task a little more. Do you want the search to take place without any user interface (such a JFileChooser provides)? Could the file be anywhere "on the computer" or is its possible location known to some extent? What is known about the file - ie how would the search recognise the file if it were found?

    Your post identified three tasks: (1) Searching for a file (with the ambiguities noted above) (2) Creating a file and (3) Writing data to a file. Which is proving difficult?
