Hi All, I want to open a excel file on click of an hyperlink in a jsp page.I have to open the excel file and show open dialog box with a defaulf directory(say C:\TEST) on click.So that user can select any excel file under that directory. Please guide how to to that.
You would need to write a component that can read files that reside outside of your file system, present these files in a web-page, then, each file in the list should be represented by a hyperlink that points to a servlet which can stream the file to the client.
There is nothing in the Servlet or JSP APIs for launching true OS dialog boxes on the client machine.
