hi all,

I have a problem. When try to create file instance form File(URI) constructor of file.
I m creating URI by passing string url to URI like http://localhost:8080/testApp/myFile.txt
when i type this on browser i can see the file but i not able to access via File by passing the same uri.

Thanks in Advance & Regards,
