Can I write a JSP program which can act an an FTP client?

Sure. Just put in "ftp://ftp.xxxxxxxx" instead of "http://www.xxxxxxxx" and it should work fine. Just make sure that the target of the ftp link has an FTP server. The JSP is not really the ftp "program" you are asking about, but JSP is used to dynamically create static pages, therefore the JSP file could create the ftp links (client links) to the ftp server. You could just as easily make your JSP file access an ftp search engine, all the while the user thinks you are the search engine.
