Hello I need to create a folder at runtime and download some zip in that an extract them in the folder.

Once in month/year we need to clear it up using the some batch.

So i need to know, do i need to set permission for my app to access the system folder because as it is I am getting the exception in doing it.

java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to create the local folder for downloading file: /var/abc/ore

Any suggestion i need this urgently

Between i am novice and don't know to much of linux/unix so please bear for my insanity. The entire system has been setup by me so please suggest keeping that in mind.

For a webapp to be able to create a folder, the parent folder must have the right access rights for the user ID under which Tomcat is running.

you can create folder before run you web app,then you can create zip in this folder while your app is running.
zip file named like this: year-month-day-hh-mm.zip
