Will you please post some code to let us see what you're trying to do.
Are you sure that the file-access permissions are correct for the user thats running tomcat?
Do you have write access to the directory to where the file exists?

Mr.Raja First u should check do u have write access of that by using the method of isWrite() from java.io.file package then used the java.io.file delete() method to used that file.
