      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      this is a continuation of bug 4037524 except there is now an additional issue: JFileChooser does not bring up the native open dialog on mac os x. Hence JFileChooser is *not* an option over FileDialog in this case.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      native feeling required for acceptance of Java on the desktop.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      either
      make jfiledialog look native (which I see problems with but not impossible), which would be optimal

      or

      add directorymode to filedialog

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      see bug 4037524, run on mac os x.
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      jfilechooser, but it looks very out of place
