I am using Jboss-4 application server in my local server.
I would like to include a HTML file which is placed outside the web application (eg: sample.war) in a
im using the following to include the HTML file
The issue is filepath is considered with reference to the application
then JSP include tag is considering path as /sample/html/static/temp.html
But the structure for the HTML file is C:/html/static/temp.html ( local hard disk )
How to include the HTML file in such case?

You cannot include anything from outside your webapp. You can copy the file into your webapp or use a frame/iframe in the html code generated by your JSP to include that page.

Well, I wouldn't consider an iframe an "include". It's a separate page that just happens to be embedded within the window of the first.
And even with an iframe, the HTML file needs to be web accessible.
If the HTML file
web accessible through another web app, you could use the JSTL <c:import> to include it.
But as Joan pointed out, this is best handled at build-time by copying the HTML file to within the bounds of the addressing web application.
