Calling Operating system command from Database

I want to read a file list in a directory from a database procedure. I
m using Oracle 9i Release 2. How to do??? I don't want to user
external procedures. I know it can be done through java stored
procedure. Any other solution like a single command......Ja va code is
still ok...

There isn't a prebuilt "single command" solution. You have to write a
java stored procedure and a PLSQL wrapper procedure.

Read java docs and Look at list() or listFiles() functions in
"File" interface in "java.io" API. Goto http://tahiti.oracle.com
for Oracle docs.

Hint:
import java.io.*;
public class foo {
public static String getFileList (String dirname) {
....
File dir = new File(dirname);
String[] entries = dir.list();
...
}
}
