I'm using ubuntu 10.04 for android development.I want to know whether there is a method to access local files(say text files,web pages) of the filesystem in android emulator.
You can use the
adb command which comes in the tools dir of the SDK:
It will give you a command line prompt where you can browse and access the filesystem. Or you can extract the files you want:
adb pull /sdcard/the_file_you_want.txt
Also, if you use eclipse with the ADT, there's a view to browse the file system (Window->Show View->Other... and choose Android->File Explorer)
