Hi all
Is it possible to provide a downloading functionality for a file which is on disk(not on a web server) ? i.e. Can I provide a direct link to that file ?
If yes, How to do this ?


Thanks
Ritesh

Not really a Java question. Assuming you are not using a web server you need to ensure the file exists in some sort of share the client can see.

Paul, the OP hasn't described the application, but is there possibly an issue here with Java applet security as well?
