I need a JSP File Manager.  Does anyone know of one?

I am looking for a JSP based File Manager.

Here are my basic requirements:

Be able to:

store files on server
upload files
download files
store/view type of file (word document, image, presentation, zip file, etc)
store/view who the file belongs to, that is to say who first uploaded it
store/view/download multiple versions/editions of files
store/view comments of the file and comments on each version/edition
store/view history of who has accessed files
store/view history of who has modified files

I imagine this type of application would have other features.  The more the better.

Does anyone know of such an application?

Open source preferred, but I am willing to purchase something as a last resort.

I have already looked at those applications.

They are basically just thin clients to represent your file structure on a JSP page.  I am thinking that the application I am looking for will have a database back end or something like that to retain all the information.  Please re-read the requirements.

I think you will have to write you own one then, maybe using these as a starting point...

Well I'm hoping that won't be necessary, hence my question if anyone knows of one.  In my opinion, this kind of application is not unique.  I'm sure there are plenty of developers who have created something similar.  

Tim, thanks anyway for your suggestions.

Is there anyone else who knows of a JSP File Manager application with all or some of the above requirements?  I am particularly interested in those applications which store the versions, allow the user to enter comments,. etc.  The uploading and download part is easy.

Might be closer to what you want, but it still doesn't contain all you need...

Have you checked version control systems software. I used to use PVCS whcih I believe had a jsp front end. I also know that CVS has a web front end, not sure if its jsp though.

The KT Document Management System found at http://kt-dms.sourceforge.net/ would be a great foundation to what I'm looking for.  However, it is written in PHP.  I am programming in JSP and cannot change.

Is there anyone else out there who might be able to help me?  

Again, I am looking for a web based application similar to Knowledge Tree's Document Manager http://kt-dms.sourceforge.net/ which allows for the management of files.  

This Knowledge Tree application would be perfect, however I need an application written in JSP.  

Does anyone know of a JSP based file managment application?

I have increased the point value of this question to 350.

Thank you for your help,
