Hi all,
I am struck with a problem.
I want to read a folder and find the total number of files inside the folder. I also want to access the modified date of the file (To delete the first modified file if the count exceeds some value)...
Please help me out..Any info regarding this is welcome


Thanks in advance

You just need to use the java.io.File class
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/io/File.html

I have some sample code if you need any more help with this...
