    I would like to know if there are provisions in java to open a file
    uploaded to a remote machine and how a file can opened for reading
    from a remote machine
    It would be higly useful for me

  2. That depends entirely on the remote machine, or rather on the protocol
    you want to / can use for uploading and reading the file. SMB? HTTP?
    FTP? NFS?

  4. On Windows you can simply open a remote file by specifying the full
    pathname, e.g. \\Hostname\remote path\filename.ext.
