I'm trying to write to a text file on network share and keep receiving the
following error msg:

------------------------------------------------
IOException: java.io.FileNotFoundException:
\\myserver\dev\projects\projbefore\trans.txt
(The system cannot find the file specified)
------------------------------------------------

I store the share path in my web.xml file:



Any ideas? It must be something simple.

Thanks
Dave

As far as I know, the url(?) notation //x/y/z is propietary of windows, and only windows explorer understand it. If you open a file with java io libraries, it will fail.

Why you don't try creating a network drive pointing to that location and use that in your code (ie. X:/y/z).

What user is your Tomcat running as? The default "LocalSystem" user doesn't have access to network resources, so you'll have to change to one that does.
