    Details

      Description

      I'll appreceate if new jdk1.3.1 will be implemented those requests:

      JFileChooser
      ------------
      * give a oportunity to convert/noconvert symlinks(shortcuts on M$win) on unixes
       Current state is that it convert selected path given by symliks to absolute
       path which causes later a lot of problems. For instance look at
      http://andorra.eng:8080/cgi-bin/ws.exe/bugtraq/bug.hts?bugid_value=4387869
       (Problem CVS FS with given path to repository because of unwanted resolving
       symlink into absolut path.
       OTOH: it could be sometimes useful. It helps me now to get to wanted dir
       much faster with the resolving symlink into full path 'cause I can get easyly
       to few level up and than down in real absolute path.
      * show hidden files (dotted on unix). Now it isn't possible to browse throught
       this dotted files.
      * Create New Folder should move the caret to just created Folder which should be
       placed in Top of visible scroll list. Now it create this folder somewhere
       and user doesn't have any idea if it was created or not or where h/she can find
       it and rename it.
      * And it also should offer you the way of deleting files/dirs.
