I think, you mean you want to list down all the file names, of a particular directory, in your JSP page. right?

If yes then its simple just get all the names of files present in particular directory, place them in a collection and then iterate that collection object in order to show the list.

Where is the problem?

Use the java.util.File class for reading your directory.
Then, follow Adeel's directions.

Of course you realize that you only have access to the server's file system. correct?
