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

Greetings,
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
...etc
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.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
