If you class has an array name files

public class MyClass
{
    File[] files;


then in your buttons actionPerformed method add the follwoing


private void jButton3ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {

   files = chooser.getSelectedFiles();
}

Or if using the show methods

        int returnVal = fc.showSaveDialog(...

        if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
            files = chooser.getSelectedFiles();


Let me know if you have any questions

hi this is my source code. im adding the selected .java file from jFileChooser to the list. Then im trying to run the .java file from a event of button and print in text area. here is my source code:

JfilechooserActionPerformed:
 private void jFileChooser1ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                              
           
            try{
            File file = jFileChooser1.getSelectedFile();
            list.add(file.getName());
            System.out.println(list);
            }catch(Exception e){
                System.err.print(e);
            }
        }      

Here is source code for the button:
SwingWorker worker = new SwingWorker<Void, String>() {
                @Override
                public Void doInBackground() {
                    int exitValue = -999;
               try{
                   System.out.println("Executing.....");
                    p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe -c 'cd \"C:/JDBCRegressionBugs/New folder\";  javac list '");
                   p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe -c 'cd \"C:/JDBCRegressionBugs/New folder\"; java list '");
                   System.out.println("Running.....");
                   BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream()));
                   String line = null;
                   publish("is64bit = "+is64bit);
                   while ((line = in.readLine()) != null) {
                   System.out.println(line);
                   publish(line);
                   }
                    // clean up if any output in stderr
                   InputStream stderr = null;
                   stderr = p.getErrorStream ();
                   BufferedReader    brCleanUp = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader (stderr));
                   while ((line = brCleanUp.readLine ()) != null)
                   {
                       System.out.println ("[Stderr] " + line);
                       publish("[Stderr] " + line);
                   }
                   brCleanUp.close();

                   }catch (IOException e) {
                   e.printStackTrace();
                }
                try
                {
                  p.waitFor();
                  exitValue = p.exitValue();
                  System.out.println("ExitValue = "+exitValue);
                } catch (Exception err)
                {
                  err.printStackTrace();
                }

                 return null;
              }

            @Override
              protected void process(List<String> chunks) {
               for (String chunk : chunks) {
                        System.out.println(chunk);
                        jTextArea5.append(chunk + "\n");
                }
              }
                };
                worker.execute();

        }

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>>p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe -c 'cd \"C:/JDBCRegressionBugs/New folder\";  javac list '");

Looks wrong. For one thing, javac takes a file with a .java extension. Make sure you can execute each command at the command line first
