inside a servlet i want to create a directory on a tomcat 4.1.30-server.

the logged result is always false and the folder is not created.
in the tomcat.policy-file i have the following entry:

the mod of the folder, where i want to create that directory in, is 777 (all permissions set).

am i having a wrong tomcat.policy? do i have to use a codebase?

I agree. Here's the link:
