Hi Avik,

The problem with this customized button text is that it does not 
localized. If we do this change we will get a lot bugs from users that 
use Mac with non-English locales because they will see "Choose" button 
You are correct there are no OSX resource bundles in Java.  In native 
dialogs we rely on OS localization. So we need to find a way to 
customize the button but according to the system locale, which may be 
not easy.
I told to Sergey and he wonders why "Open" button is the default system 
behavior while Apple issues recommendations to use "Choose" button? Can 
you dig in this direction? It is possible, this bug should not be fixed 
at all.
