Well, the question seems to be too vague for me. Can you be more specific? e.g.
1) Which server? mail server? file server? web server? application server?
2) What do you mean by first file? first file read during server startup? first file read during handling of a client request?
3) What is 'any' application? is it over rmi? socket? web? which technology is it using? there are some applications in which both - client and server (i.e. server side code) do not have to read a single file
4) What do you mean by 'server'? is it the server side code that coder writes? or is it actual server application? or web container? or something else?
The more specific you become with your question, chances are you'll get better help.
