  1. How can we search File System in JSP..? (4 messages)


      I have one doubt How can we search our Files which are present in Public-html folder by using Keyword search.
    Pls help me in this regard.
    Presently i am working for a Portal Module. In that there is a small module for searching. There are some files in my public-html folder like (one.jsp, two.jsp etc..). Now i want to do search these files by keyword search.. If i type 't' and click the search button.. it must display all files which are starting with 't' that i can display that files as records in the other jsp file...can u give me a sample example (code) so that it can fulfill my purpose..

  5. Hi
    I misread the question. I thot u wanted to search the content of the files. What u want to do is to read the file names, right?

    u can use the object to list all the files, store it. U will have to implement a simple string search on the filenames.
