I have the following button which opens a dialog box of filechooser, can someone tell me how to restrict the user to choose only .xml file?

 Load.addActionListener(new ActionListener()
               {
                     public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
                       {
                              //Handle open button action.
                     if (e.getSource() == Load)
                      {
                         int returnVal = fc.showOpenDialog(GUI.this);
                         if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION)
                           {
                              File file = fc.getSelectedFile();
                             
                              printStats("Loaded successfully: " + file.getName() + "." + "\n");
                           }               
                          }
                     }
               }
             );
