Seems to me there are two possibilities:
1. Create a custom version of Tomcat's defaultServlet with the desired presentation and set the "listings" parameter to "true". See the conf/web.xml for how this gets configured. You can also use a custom XSLT transform to customise directory listings.

2. Create a custom servlet mapped to a specific URL for only directory listings.

In any case you will be using methods in the java.io.File class - I suggest working with these outside the servlet environment first.

Where the default servlet is located in tomcat. If we are creating custom default servlet where we have to put that file, whether in WEB-INF/classes area or anyother location. if possible can you give some sample code for that. that will be helpful for me.
Thanks for your reply.

The standard Tomcat installation comes with a "class-loader-howto.html" file under ../webapps/docs that tells all about where classes should go for various purposes.
