I have a
web site where users can upload files to the server hosting the site.
These files can then be downloaded by other users.
I was wondering if anyone knows the best way to store the files on the file system?
For instance is it better to store them all in one directory or multiple directories?
Does anyone know if there are any articles which would explain the best way to store and retrieve these files.
Thanks for the help.

hi Patrick McDonogh
you can use struts formFile for file uploading
and you can use BufferedinputStream(for the file content) for downloading
that uploaded file content
