1'm sorry, i didn't communicate effectively.
we have been assigned a project in which files on a remote unix os is to be used like a database for a jsp front end application.Are there any packages or classes in java which would enable easy access of the file, and to extract and insert data effectively into the unix files from the jsp front end application.

On the remote machine you need "something" to listen for calls from the Java web server and process those calls via sending data to the calling process. As I understand, the Java API does not contain any classes that can be used to read data from the remote machine directly.

You also will need "something" on the machine hosting the web server which will connect to the remote machine. Tivoli Enterprise Console comes to mind. If you can install a Java application server on the host machine, that would work as well.

Good luck!
