I'm currently working on load balancing project. I need access to the file on another computer connected to mine over LAN so that I could balance the disk space of that computer. Is there any way possible to do this using java? like how i can display all the files stored in the other computer in something like a tree?? using java.

It is 100% possible. All you need to do is to study:
1. FileInputStream, BufferedReader
2. Java Networking
Then you can go ahead with your project. Good luck
