Hi Friend,

Try this:

import java.io.*;
import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
class FileName extends JFrame
{
    JTextArea JTextAreaOutputDirectory;
    JButton b;
    JScrollPane pane;
     FileName(){
     setLayout(null);
     JTextAreaOutputDirectory=new JTextArea(5,20);
     pane=new JScrollPane(JTextAreaOutputDirectory);
     b=new JButton("Open");
     pane.setBounds(10,10,200,80);
     b.setBounds(10,100,80,20);
     add(pane);
     add(b);
     setVisible(true);
     setSize(300,180);
     b.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
         public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
          JFileChooser fc = new JFileChooser();
          fc.showOpenDialog(null);
          File curFile = fc.getSelectedFile();
          JTextAreaOutputDirectory.append(curFile.getName());
         }
   });
    }
    public static void main(String[] args) 
    {
        new FileName();
    }
}

Thanks
