Jython to read contents of directory or folder

I want Jython to read the contents of a directory or folder, to display what folder or directories are in it, and then to use those names in my program.

------------------------------------------------
I am given the following:

1. Consider this folder structure:

C:/_rob/profile1/plugin-cfg.xml
C:/_rob/profile2/plugin-cfg.xml
C:/_rob/profile3/plugin-cfg.xml

2. I need to read each plugin-cfg.xml.
3. I don't know the NAME of the folders in _rob, NOR do I know how many folders there are in _rob.

I do know that each will have a plugin-cfg.xml.

Not much help out there for jython. Figured this out by a lot of painful trial and error. Hope this helps someone.
