[opencms-dev] Load templates randomly from a folder

Hey Experts!,
I want to load jsps/templates randomly from a folder.Let us say under for
project offline or online we have "/sites/default/demopages"
and there are several tempaltes like indext.html,element.html,indext.html
and there are and subfolders.

I want that when user requests resource "/sites/default/demopages" , he
should see these templates randomly.
If this succeeds, I will probably want to do same for subfolders.

I dont know if I was naive but I tried to achieve this unsuccessfully by
subclassing org.opencms.i18n.CmsDefaultLocaleHandler since this is
configurable in opencms-system.xml.
So I just have one method in my subclassed CmsDefaultLocaleHandler where I
override getI18nInfo as:

    public CmsI18nInfo getI18nInfo(HttpServletRequest req, CmsUser user,
CmsProject project, String resourceName) {
        System.out.println("getI18nInfo resourceName=" + resourceName);
        List fileList = null;
        CmsObject cmso = null;
        String fname = null;
        try {
                    cmso = OpenCms.initCmsObject(user.getName()); 
                   fileList = cmso.getFilesInFolder(resourceName);
                   int fileListSize = fileList.size();
                   if (fileListSize == 0) {
                       System.out.println("No files found in " +
resourceName + ".");
                   } else {
                       int rand = (int) (Math.random() * 10);
                       System.out.println(" rand =" + rand);
                       CmsFile f = (CmsFile) fileList.get(rand %
                       fname = f.getName();
                       System.out.println("fname=" + fname);
                       resourceName = resourceName + fname;
                       System.out.println(" new random resourceName =" +
resourceName );
        } catch (CmsException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block

        return super.getI18nInfo(req, user, project, resourceName);

I know there is something worng. So I need some expert help with code
snippet if possible as to waht should I do. Please help.:confused:
