The window toolkit shipped with HotJava provides a FileDialog class
that maps to the native file selection dialog on the platform it's
running on. It has a simplified interface, of course, so not all the
features of all the file dialogs are supported.

|From what *I* understand of Java, it isn't currently possible to
|create a 'file upload' applet.  The 'file upload' proposal asks for a
|platform-specific 'file selection dialog' to take place, and I don't
|see this as a Java primitive, nor how one might build such a thing
|using any of the Java primitives.
|Perhaps there are some Java experts who might clarify this?
