Hi all,
I am using struts and i am generating file in one particular folder on server. I want functionality that if user selects criteria and clicks on submit button report file should open. I want that if report file is already created on server (I know what file name to look for in server as if first time user selects date 01/31/2006 file generated is reportname_01/30/2006 ) So i have what file to look for in server, If file is there on server i want that it directly opens that file no need to create file again on server. I want to know how to check that this file is present on server or not. If file is on server i want that my query doesnt get fired again and i will directly open that file some what Caching. So before query i want to write checking condition. Please guide me how to check that file is there on server or not.

Its very urgent
