 the attached application uses JFileChooser to open a file. That is working fine.
What I want  to happen when  "open" is  selected for  the file is  that  the file is put into a specific folder ie C:\\ANT\\Source\\
I have been trying to implement this using the jMenuItemActionPerformed method ( see code snippet below) but end up getting compiler errors.
The current implementation gets no compiler errors,
Can you help put   the chosen file in  the specified folder?
ps in  the attached file  the method starts at line 107
private void jMenuItem1ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                           
JFileChooser jfc = new JFileChooser();
        if(jfc.showOpenDialog(this) == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
            //code to handle choosed file here.
                   // TODO add your handling code here:
                   File file = jfc.getSelectedFile();
                   FileInputStream in = null;
        FileOutputStream out = null;
        File folder = new File("C:\\ANT\\Source\\");
    File[] listOfFiles = folder.listFiles();
                   try {
                   in = new FileInputStream(file);
                   catch(FileNotFoundException e){}
