THis is driving me nuts and I am sure it is really simple! If I have my servlet in jswdk-1.0.1/examples/web-inf/servlets which is mapped as http://localhost:8080/examples/servlet and I have a file in jswdk-1.0.1/webpages which I think is mapped as http://localhost:8080/ then how do I read my file. I have an xml file and I want to parse the contents but it simply is not working no matter how I try. Please help!!!
