Default Drives and Directories


How do you program a servlet to scan through all the drives and directories of a server to search for a particular file? In other words, I would like to use a servlet to display a list of available drives (C:\, D:\, etc.) in the form of <a href> reference links. Upon clicking a link of a particular drive, it would show the available directories/folders in that drive. Again, upon clicking the link to a particular folder, it would show the available files in that folder.

Pls help!!! Thanks in advance! : )

Use java.io.File.list(), which returns an array of all files in a directory, then iterate through the array using java.io.File.isDirectory() to determine if the element is a directory or ot. Have at the JavaDoc for more detailed information.
