save the following code to a jsp page, name it Jsp1.jsp, then execute it using tomcat,
offcourse it's primitive, but I hope it will help,

<%@ page import="java.io.*"%>
Directory List
String fileName=request.getParameter("fileName");
if (fileName==null) fileName="c:/";
<form method="post">
<%File file=new File(fileName);
File sons[] = file.listFiles();
for(int i=0;i<sons.length;i++){
if (sons[i].isDirectory())

out.println("<a href='Jsp1.jsp?fileName="+sons[i].toString().replace('\\','/')+"'>"+sons[i]+"</a>");
