E.g. I have 2 same folder at client and server called "backup", now i want to copy all the files from server to client (those files are not exist in client). The file should include sub directory and sub directory's files.

The copy program should locate at client machine.

thanks

use the following to copy from one stream to another (in your case you file stream):

public static copyStream(InputStream in, OutputStream out)
{
   int n = 0;
   byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
   while (-1!=(n=in.read(buf)))
   {
      out.write(buf, 0, n);
   }
   out.close();
   in.close();
}

How will the client be accessing the files on the server?

This is the most important question...

You can do this via FTP, RMI or something like a servlet...

Each solution requires a different server setup, but without them you cannot just copy files off one machine to another

have a look into RSYNC (http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/), it is for synchronizing the same data onto multiple machines, this might work for your approach... otherwise use FTP(various Java FTP libraries available that allow browsing directories) to get a list of remote files, and fetch those that do not exist locally (also take care of changes to remote files, i.e. check timestamp or remote files and keep track of when local files were synchronized!)
