    See the File class API doc. It has methods for doing that.

    Take a look at the API for the File class
    File (Java Platform SE 6)
    In particular the listFiles methods

    this class File is not working
    Can you explain what "not working" means. The File class will work in a Swing application.
    Please post the full text of the error messages and the code that is causing the error.
