we are using two jboss servers in two different machines. from the one server we need to create a file in another machine which is having shared folder.

if we write a normal java program it is able to create the file, but when we try through jboss it was failed.

is some thing i have to do with jboss configuration?

probably jboss server is started using different user account which doesn't have write permission to the shared folder. Check the owner of jboss process using ps utility on UNIX.

I think here is a problem. Usually then you install jboss as is installed as localsystem account. I think you should modify service startup to be started as user which has access to the shared folder.

open Services window (from Control Panel or by right clicking on Computer icon/Manage and select services there). Right click on your jboss service. Click on 'Log on' tab. There you will see with which user account it is started. Usually it will be Local System Account.
Select "This Account" Click on "Browse" button and you can type user name there or click on advanced button and try to find user which has rights to the shared folder (probably your current account)
Save service definition and restart jboss service
