Java WebStart and JFileChooser

Discussion in 'Java' started by Alex Schonlinner, Feb 27, 2004.

  1. Dear group readers,

    We currently have a standard Java application which is running
    just fine. Now we'd like to distribute it using WebStart. This
    works fine for most of the part.

    But: Serveral PC's have policies which allow writing only into
    some specific directories. Now when using JFileChooser it first
    of all tries to scan the available drives. This now fails with
    SecurityExceptions. We tried to use a FileSystemView class of
    our own but this did not work, too.

    Does anybody know how to use the JFileChooser in an environment
    where only a single directory has read/write access for an
    application and all ther directories have neither read nor
    write access?

    Best regards,
    Alex
