Hi. I am currently making an applet that uses a JFileChooser. It's supposed to work on both Mac and Windows OS. I just would like to know if JFileChooser is compatible with both operating systems (like, it automatically takes care of the file name format differences and such). I dont really know anything about Mac OS though.

One more question, In the file chooser, the user may be allowed to choose more then one file. I would like to know what is the standard file name separator for Windows and for Mac if any or what would you recommend?

Thank you very much in advance. I need all the help I can get =)

JFileChooser should work on any Java platform.

Use File.separator in your filenames.

Thanks for the tip. I checked the File API and realized that what I needed was the pathSeparator variable. Thanks again.
