Java JFileChooser class

I'm fighting my way through learning Java, and my prof hasn't fully picked it up yet. When I use a JFileChooser object to allow users to open a file, how do I tell it to start at the same directory the program is stored in?

Thanks

Done and Done!

You use the setCurrentDirectory() method.

Example:
JFileChooser jFileChooser = new JFileChooser;
jFileChooser.setCurrentDirectory (new File ("."));

It looks like you just pass it a new file object, anyone know why this works?

because if you dont have an empty file object for it to put anything into it wont do nothing.
