It's not possible to browse the files on your local machine - that would break the browser security model. There's actually a way to circumvent the security - you can install an ActiveX object to scan your local disks. However this is not something I would recommend.

On the other hand, if you want to see what's  on the server, you can write a bean to scan the disks, and bind the data with the page's UI, probably to a treetable component.

actually I am looking for a component of some kind (i.e. web services, standalone app..etc) that browse the filesystem of the web server unix machine. This component must reside at the same location as the web server.
