I have a servlet which is supposed to go into a certain directory called year which has a subdirectory dayOfYear. The dayOfyear directory has data files which are named from the first day of the year to 365 or 366 depending on if it is a leap year. This servlet is supposed to get all the years from the year directory and get all the dayOfYears from the dayOfYear directory and print out a certain year and all of its days. How would I be able to access these directories and files, manipulate there names as strings, and output a year and all of its days as a string.
You can manage directories using the java.io.File package. Basically f = new File(path); File ls = f.listFiles(); Give you the list of the directories or files you have within the specified path. ls[i].isDirectory(), well, it's quite obvious, tell you if it is a directory or a file.. and f.getName() give you the name Take a look at java.io.File for further information HTH
