External files hosted on the server


Is there a way to access files already stored on the server? The files are supposed to be on the same server hosting the application server or they could be on another server (mapped to a drive on the application server).

The requirement is to scan a specific folder and index the files in a Cuba application. It is not possible to move the files into the Cuba application folders as the files may be used by existing applications.

Hi Willie,

Create a middleware service and you will be able to work with the whole file system in it as in any Java application.
