Help: Automatically Creating Hyperlinks!

I am trying to create a site that lists links to shared documents and automatically updates the list everytime a file is added to the share document directory. I can use listfiles to get all of the files in the directory, but I don't know how to create hyperlinks to the files and post them to the webpage. Any suggestions?
Thanks in Advance!

Hi Julia,
Welcome to JavaRanch. Sounds like a job for JSP and Servlets. Why don't you take a look at those forums here at JavaRanch and see if that helps.

I agree. Here's the link:
