Default display directories and files using only xsl/xml..

I need to create some xml with xsl that will display the directory structure of virtual directories, look for certain file names and also look for certain text contained within files names. These files would all be either xml or xsl files.
I want to do this to allow developers to browse virtual directories (SQLXML 3.0) in a browser, see the web services available and then I will develop it from there.
thanks for any starting points

This isn't possible unless you write some extension functions to provide access to the information. Your best bet is probably to write some Java or similar code that copies the directory structure to an XML file; if you want to be clever you could write a DOM wrapper over the directory structure so that it looks like XML.
