      1. Javadoc comment for method getFile()
      says that this method
      "returns the currently selected file of this file dialog window,
      or null if none is selected.".
        ^^^^^^^
      This is not true.
      In accordance with the AWT's general null-handling methodology,
      this method should return "" instead of null.
      And in JDK12-fcsF getFile() returns "".

      2. Javadoc comment for method getDirectory() says nothing
      about return value when there is no selected file.
