FTP has facilities for sending files. Sending folders just means to send files and subfolders recursively for the selected folder. You need to make sure that any subfolders exist on the target machine, before transferring the files.
What do you have so far? Which FTP API are you using?
i am not using any FTP API .i am on creating it by using Java sockets
and ServerSocket.when client wants a file from server it sends
dout.writeUTF("SEND").Then server reads the stream usign din.readUTF().
i have so many commands like SEND,RECEIVE,EXIST,NOT EXIST.
so that what i am cmng to say that i am not using any API.
when client selected the Server's folder.that particular folder name send
to server.After all conditions it must return the files and folders in it.

Sounds like your reinventing FTP. I'd at least read the doc for FTP to get all the protocol/commands you'll need.
A folder is a construct on an OS that allows you to organize files. Sending a folder would mean a sending a request to the reciever to create a folder by that name. See the MKDIR and ChgDir commands. [ July 29, 2008: Message edited by: Norm Radder ]
