I don't know where to place this appropriately, so I'll just post it here. I have an Excel file that I packaged with my WAR file, which I am using as a template for a certain download. When the user clicks a button, this file is read and it's content is saved as a downloaded file. The thing is, I am having problems accessing the Excel file. It seems like I cannot read the file inside the WAR. I tried accessing the same file, now saved in a directory outside of my WAR file, and the file is downloaded correctly. Does anybody out there knows how to correctly access a file inside a WAR file?
Thanks in advance.
There's so much to learn in this industry, and not everybody has the necessary interest.
