    Welcome to Java Programming Forums Chow

    It's reletively simple in java, have a look at the File class, and listFiles();

    File (Java Platform SE 6)

    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    Please take a look here - Java Code Snippets and Tutorials - Java Programming Forums

    There are lots of code examples there.

    I have edited one of the examples to suit your requirements. It needs more work but the basics are there

    import java.io.BufferedWriter;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.FileWriter;
    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.io.Writer;
     
    /**
     * JavaProgrammingForums.com
     * Spread the word!
     */
    public class ListFiles {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
     
    	    Writer output = null;
    	    File file = new File("myFile.xml");
    	    output = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(file));
     
    		// Directory path here
    		String path = "C://";		
    		String newLine = System.getProperty("line.separator");
     
    		String files = null;
    		File folder = new File(path);
    		File[] listOfFiles = folder.listFiles();
     
    		output.write("<?xml version='1.0'?>");
    		output.write(newLine);
    		output.write("<PATH>");
    		output.write(newLine);
     
    		System.out.println("PATH= "+ path);
     
    		for (int i = 0; i < listOfFiles.length; i++) {
     
    			if (listOfFiles[i].isDirectory()) {
    				files = listOfFiles[i].getName();
    				output.write(" <DIRECTORY>" + files + "</DIRECTORY>");
    				output.write(newLine);
    				System.out.println(" <DIRECTORY>" + files + "</DIRECTORY>");
    			} else {
    				files = listOfFiles[i].getName();
    				output.write("  <FILE>" + files + "</FILE>");
    				output.write(newLine);
    				System.out.println("  <FILE>" + files + "</FILE>");
    			}
    		}
    		output.write("</PATH>");
    		output.close();
    		System.out.println("XML File Written");  
    	}
    }
