      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0-ea"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-ea-b103)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.0-b45, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Mac OSX 10.8.4

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      we have been using the following approach to show a native
      file dialog to choose a directory:

      FileDialog fileDialog = .....;

      fileDialog.setMode(FileDialog.LOAD);∫
              try {
                  System.setProperty("apple.awt.fileDialogForDirectories", "true");
                  fileDialog.setVisible(true);
              } finally {
                  System.setProperty("apple.awt.fileDialogForDirectories", "false");
              }

      Now I noticed with build 103 that this allows me to select files as well. Starting the same application with Apple's JDK 6 behaves as expected (files cannot be selected).

      A guess (based on explanations by Oracle's Alexander Scherbatiy):

      In that case NSOpenPanel.setCanChooseDirectories ist set to true but NSOpenPanel.setCanChooseFiles is not set to false as it should be.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6u45

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      see above

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      FileDialog should allow selection of Directories but not allow selection of files
      ACTUAL -
      FileDialog allows selection of files and directories

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Use a native Dialog via JNI
