Are you redirecting the user's browser to that location, or are you
wanting to obtain content from that location to send to the user's
browser via a servlet running under (say) Tomcat?  If you want to do the
former, it's not possible as the browser's address bar / properties
window will show the FTP location.  If the latter, one simple approach
would be to write a servlet that opened a ReadStream on the FTP resource
and repeatedly read from that and wrote to the servlet's output stream;
I have no doubt there would be better and more standard ways if I was
more familiar with the servlet spec!
