I have two windows machines connected through LAN.
If both computers are on the same network, and it's a Windows network , I want to know how to read file placed in Shared folder/drive in machine2 by executing java program from machine1. The shared folder is public folder with full access to every one. Note that When I access the shared folder from my machine I am able to access the folder without giving any username/password.

In Java, you connect to a file on a shared directory path using a file location convention that is similar to what you would use in Windows Explorer (only the slashes are changed):

File someFile := new File("//hostName/shareName/dirPath/fileName");

Reading the file is left as an exercise for the reader.

Note: This solution is not platform-independent.
