Normally we redirect to a servlet or a jsp can we redirect to a file share i.e when we do

request.sendredirect("file:\\direcotry_a\directory_b\directory_c") ?

i tried the above but it is not working do we need to use any other format ?

sendRedirect does nothing more than send a 303 header to the browser along with a location header containing the URL that the browser should call.

The URL would have to be something that the browser can reach.
I've only ever used it for HTTP calls.
I'm not sure if you can make requests to UNC resources.

f:\\... is the syntax you would use to request a local file on a Windows box.
I don't see how this would work.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
