Servlets are for HTTP, not FTP.

Can you explain what it is that you're trying to do?

One thing you could do is run an FTP batch job from a servlet using the Runtime.exec() method. However, doing will most likely tie your application to a particular platform, as this method makes a call to the host operating system.

You could also use a servlet to set up a web page with the ability to upload files to the server or download them from the server.
