Inside the JBuilder OpenTools API
Chapter 5 - The Virtual File System

Previous   Next   Listings

To show how the VFS is used to interface with physical storage, the HTTPVFS example implements the Filesystem interface to link JBuilder to a remote machine across the Internet. A servlet runs on the remote machine to respond to requests from JBuilder for files.

This project makes use of servlets and may not run in non-Enterprise versions of JBuilder.
