The HTML file form element includes a button that will open up a file chooser. Is that what you are looking for?

Are you saying that you want the user to be able to browse files on the server?

Javascript (JS) has no ability to read anything on the server.

If you want to the user to be able to browse the server with a browser, you'll need to write some server side code (see java.io.File) that reads the contents of your file system and returns them in a form that can be presented in a web page.

You can certainly use JS to open a new window that calls these server side resources. With Ajax, you could also make requests to these server side resources and draw them directly to a pre-drawn page but there is nothing built into either JS or JSP for browsing a server's file system.
