Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-151) Provide other Filter implementation
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2007 10:56:43 GMT


Niall Pemberton commented on IO-151:

You can easily use the implementations with listFiles() - just cast to the appropriate type

File[] dirs =  file.listFiles((FileFilter)DirectoryFileFilter.DIRECTORY);

> Right now all Filters implement IOFileFilter which extends FileFilter and FilenameFilter.
Well, this is nice but only usable with method. The return type is a string
array with the filenames.
> This array is useless to me and others since we need a file object array to do some operations
with the file reference.
> applying any filter to File#listFiles(...) result in "unambigious method  call" since
IOFileFiter extends both java interfaces and java does not know which to resolve.
> So am asking to split implemetation or make is usable with listFiles methods somehow.
