That's good.

That's good too.

Thuis, you should probably change, to be the same as your own locale 
fr_FR.UTF-8 above.

Allright.  Let me see if I understand correctly your basic issue (not 
the test program, but the real application you need to create).

- miscellaneous "agents" create files, on some media, which is later 
connected to a Windows system and becomes a "shared directory".
You do not control these agents, nor the file names that they choose to 
put there.

- your application, running (later) under Tomcat, is supposed to read 
these files and do something with them.

I suppose that you do not know in advance, what the names of these files 
will be, and you just have to take what is there. Is that correct ?
