    Default Accessing client file system

    Hello all,

    One of my friends is trying to find a solution to this problem. Any suggestion from anyone could be of great help.
    This is the issue: There is a web application which is deployed in a server and the application is invoked via a client's browser. Now the developer wants access to the client's local file system. To be more precise, he wants to delete a file from the client's file system. He has complete access and rights in the client machine to delete stuff. All he has now, is just a client browser through which he wants to delete a file. We are not sure how to go about doing this or whether it is feasible to do...
    Any solution??

    You can use applets to delete files on the client side. Check the following document:
