    Default how would i add icon to my save file?

    right now, i can save a file using JFileChooser, but how would i added an icon to the file that i saved?

    PHP Code:
    		fileChooser.addChoosableFileFilter(new CLVFilter());
    		int returnValue = fileChooser.showSaveDialog(frame);
    		if(returnValue == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION){
    				//filename consists of path
    				String filename = fileChooser.getSelectedFile().toString();
    				FileWriter fstream = new FileWriter(filename);
    				BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(fstream);
    			}catch (Exception excep){//Catch exception if any
    				System.err.println("Error: " + excep.getMessage());

    Files don't directly have icons, but the operating system can have icons associated with a file type. You would need to do this association through your OS, and possibly not via Java.
