    Default JFileChooser Please Help

    Hi, I am fairly new to java. I was given an assignment to do which i find difficult. I must create a program that uses JFileChooser to select a zip file that contains 2 text files. The program then must manipulate data in the text files like reverse words and lines and save them as different files.

    So far i have created a JFileChooser object ( JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser(); ) but i don't know what to do next to tell it to open the zip file and look at the text documents. This is all new to me. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks alot in advance.

    so far i have this.. i can select only zip files with the JFileChooser but i don't know how to get the program to deal with the data in the text files inside the zip file.
    //
    import javax.swing.*;
    import javax.swing.filechooser.FileNameExtensionFilter;
     
    public class Main {
     
    	public static void main(String args[]){
     
    		JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
    		FileNameExtensionFilter filter = new FileNameExtensionFilter("zip files","zip");
    		chooser.setFileFilter(filter);
    		chooser.showOpenDialog(null);
     
     
     
    	}
     
     
     
    }
    //

    The JFileChooser.getSelectedFile() will return the file selected by the user.
