[ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-79?page=all ]

Mario Ivankovits closed VFS-79.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Yep, unhappily the http filesystem do not support the getChildren method.

System.err.println("can list children=" + 

Some people already asked about this feature and maybe also started to 
implement it, but not patch has been submitted yet. The problem is, that its 
not necessarily easy to parse the html output.
