I want to get the tree like structure
My requirement is that when I write any jsp and put it in webapps's any
folder I should get tree like structure of the folders in which I am putting my jsp.
Foe example I have structure like
----(Here goes my jsp which would make to get sructure)
When I type http://localhost:8080/rakesh_folder3/rakesh_subfolder2/jspname
I want output as
----my_other_file_1 (size of file) (time stamp)
----my_other_file_2 (size of file) (time stamp)
How should I proceed ???
Tx in advance

You can get the information of the url typed in as follows:
request.getRequestURL() - will return:
protocol + host + context path + servlet path + path info
example: http://localhost:8080/MyWebApp/securitytest/hello
request.getRequestURI() - will return:
context path + servlet path + path info
example: /MyWebApp/securitytest/hello
If you want to display a file tree, you can call the following methods:
returns: /MyWebApp
returns: /securitytest
returns: /hello
You could also parse the requestURI using the "/" character as a delimiter
