Hi, I need to delete files in certain folder in the server. File.delete() doesn't work for my case, do you have any idea how to do?
Thanks a lot...

See this thread for ideas. When you say delete files on the server, are you using a program running on the server? Or are you trying to do this remotely somehow?

I'm using multipartRequest to upload the file to the directory in the server, and i have written a small program to upload the file from the server's directory to the Blob in the database. So after the database uploading is complete, i need to delete the files in the server's directory.
I went through the thread in the reply and try in on, when i check the existance of the files, those files are exist, file.delete() just can't delete the files. Do you have any idea why and how?
Thanks a lot...
