    Its just a standard java program, so neither :s

    code is something like this:-

    Java Code:
    public static void main (String [] args)
        {
           
            JFileChooser fc = new JFileChooser();
            int returnVal = fc.showOpenDialog(this);
            System.out.println(returnVal);
            System.out.println(fc.getSelectedFile());
    
        }
    but I just wanna open the filechooser to point at a given dir

    There is another JFileChooser constructor that needs a parameter, and that parameter is a file, should be a directory....

    If the received value from the parameter is a file, then the directory where that file is located will be used as a starting directory of JFileChooser....

    kind regards,

    To run Java applet you need to have jre. Can you clearly explain what you want to know. JFileChooser is just a UI control in Java, swing component actually. You can use it in Applet, in simple word applet also a Java class embedded on HTML page. (You can view the applet on applet viewer as well.)

    In JSP too, you can use it. But the calling/adding it in JSP and applet are different. I mean the import to your project and so on.
