There are few (ok one) solutions to use dbms_backup_restore.searchfiles() to
generate list of available files in a given directory. However, this doesn't
work consistently, (10203 on Solaris 8 and Solaris 10).  The procedure
executes successfully always and when you select from associated x$ view,
only then you know if it actually populated data or not.
I do know it is not a supported behavior, but has anyone been able to make
it work consistently?

Currently i have used code demonstrated by Jared to generate a list but
still would like to explore non-java option. (cron based ' ls -l >
dirlist.txt ' etc options are not really usable for me.)

Thanks in advance
Best regards
