Hi I want to list all the directories in a web application. Is there an easy way to get an array of all the directories?

In the java.io.File api there is a method called list(), but this method only returns an array of files and directories in the directory denoted by this abstract pathname...

How can I easy get a list of all the other sub directories?

The process method is where you list all dirs or files in one directory:

http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.io/GetFiles.html

Example:

public java.io.File[] process( java.io.File dir ){

File[] files = dir.listFiles();
FileFilter fileFilter = new FileFilter() {

public boolean accept(File file) {
return file.isDirectory();
}
};

files = dir.listFiles(fileFilter);

if (files == null) {
return null;
// Either dir does not exist or is not a directory
}
else {
return files;
}

To list all dirs and files you can use this method:

http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.io/TraverseTree.html

// Process all files and directories under dir
public static void visitAllDirsAndFiles(File dir) {
process(dir);

if (dir.isDirectory()) {
String[] children = dir.list();
for (int i=0; i<children.length; i++) {
visitAllDirsAndFiles(new File(dir, children[i]));
}
}
}
