      Description

      There are often cases where users are required to select a directory. Currently this functionality is supported using a customized version of the file chooser dialog. This is problematic because the appearance and behavior of the dialog do not make it clear that the thing to be selected is a directory, not a file.
      For example the File Name and File Type fields are still visible. Also if the user double-clicks and opens the directory that they want the dialog will not close - they must move up a level in the hierarchy and select the directory when it is in the list.
      This has caused a great deal of confusion in usability tests of the J2EE deploytool.
