Icon based directory view


The goal of this subproject to provide a new directory view for Batavia. Files and directories should be displayed as icons like in windows explorer or Konqueror(KDE/Linux)

  • The user should be able to change to another directory by double clicking on a directory icon

  • The view should be able to accept drag & drop style copying. In this case most of the functionality will be handled by existing code

  • The view should have icons for navigation: back, forward and up

  • Other icons should be provided for search, delete, etc. Also mostly handled by existing code.

  • Additional information should be displayed if user hovers the mouse over a file or directory

  • Sorting functionality(optional)

  • Path of current directory should be displayed at top of window and should be editable

  • thumbnail icons for images(jpeg, gif, png, etc) and for other files (optional)

  • Additional features to make it more user friendly

Implementation details

  • Code exists for coying, moving, deleting files

  • The implementation should call the existing methods with appropriate parameters (Documentation will be provided)

  • If possible junit test should be provided in the test directory. The package of the test class and the class under test should be in the same package.

  • The code should follow Sun's Java coding convention

  • Documentation should be provided for Each class.

  • Not all methods need to be documented. Eg getters/setters can be skipped.

  • Usage of design patterns are preferred eg MVC
