Hello all,

Here's my problem. I'm trying to read the contents of a folder on the server where my applet is stored, and add all filenames to a combo box. I've been able to read individual files for settings and such using code like:


But I'm wondering if it's possible to read a folder this way, somehow get a list of the contents, and play with that instead. If not, I might have to make a file listing the contents of the folder, but ideally, I want files to be uploaded at any time and have the applet just pick up on it, without having to edit files or anything.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

You can list the contents of a directory using java.io.File. Of course, you can't use a File object across a network connection so you will probably need to create a servlet to use the File and return the results.
