The worked example from Chapter 13 shows how to use recursion to search for files with a specified extension. Read through the example carefully.
Create a Java Swing GUI program that uses the JFileChooser to allow the user to select a directory on the system. Then use the recursive approach from the worked example to list all the files within the chosen directory and any of its sub-directories. (Use a JTextArea ScrollPane to display the files. Minimum GUI Elements :
- Start Button that displays the JFileChooser (Set it to only allow the user to pick directories)
- Quit Button
- JTextArea with JScrollPane for displaying the files.
- A title JLabel for you GUI.
NOTE: you might NOT want to try to list the entire drive.
- The program runs with no errors.
- Propert implementation of the Recursion algorithm.
- Proper usage of Git and GitHub (frequent commits, explanatory commit messages)
You will be submitting a git repository with the following naming convention,
6-recursive-file-lister-lab-Ygilany). The repository contains:
- one Java Project with the following files:
- FileListerFrame.java (JFrame extended class)
- FileListerRunner.java (has a main method)
- a modified README.md file that includes your self-assessment
