How do I read multiple files in one directory from URL?

Hi!

I have multiple files in a directory and I want to send it as an email attachment:

Eg:

http://www.mysite.com/myDirectory/

contains file1.txt, file2.txt.

I know how to attach it in an email. I just don't know how to read the files from the directory and pass it into:

URL url = new URL("http://www.mysite.com/myDirectory/");

File file = new File(url);

Please help. Thanks.

You would likely not use a File, but work with an InputStream - which you can get via url.openStream().

Hi. Thanks for your reply.

Is it possible to list the files in that directory?Because the filenames in that directory is unknown.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean by "that directory". What you showed us so far is an HTTP URL, and those can't be used to represent a directory.

I'm not sure if what you want can be done. But I would start with the URLConnection class.
