Hello, I am building a webapp using MVC pattern, servlet as controller, jsp as view and javaBeans as model. My webapp will let editors to modify or add new columns or essays as they please. My plan is to create or modify existing html file with their writings and just include( <jsp:include ...> ) those files in jsp. However, I am having trouble writing files in servlet. For instance, following code ... File temp = new File("\column.html"); temp.createNewFile(); ... creates column.html in C:\column.html. what I what is to be able to create html files in the same level as WEB-INF directory and let jsp include them with no problem. Many thanks in advance for your help
