Cannot Choose a Directory to Save Index

The default "native" file dialog used to choose the save location for the index cannot be used to select directories. There are two workarounds for this problem:

  1. Use the "Swing" file chooser instead. This can be enabled on the command line by using the -DUseSwingChooser=true option. In the future we hope to make the Swing file chooser the default file dialog for SiteSurfer, but it also has some problems that need to be resolved by Sun before it is a viable solution.
  2. If the directory you want has any files in it, select any one of those files and press "OK". The directory path will then be properly extracted.
