I�d like to know how can I manipulate a text file. For example: uploading, downloading, opening, reading and writing a text file.

You would need to explore the following --> java.io.File
and the methods such as
++ createNewFile()
Atomically creates a new, empty file named by this abstract pathname if and only if a file with this name does not yet exist
++ delete()
Deletes the file or directory denoted by this abstract pathname
++ mkdir()
Creates the directory named by this abstract pathname
If you need to see how is this being done, book "JavaServer Pages: Your Visual Blueprint to Designing Dynamic Content with JSP" which you can find on amazon.com has exact examples of what are you looking for.
