> In Core Java, it says that javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter is an interface and it shows example code for implemeting it?
> This error from the 4th edition is retracted in the Bug List on Cay Horstmann's web site.

javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter. Sorry to have been confusing in this matter.
