Loading file from server into browser window

Hello,

I'm developing and jsp, with some struts, application and am required to keep a folder of image and pdf files outside the application context and on the server - ie c:\files\load. The files need to reside outside the application so that they are not wiped out when a new war file is deployed. I've done this many times for an images folder or something from within the app but can't figure out how to do this from the file system. Anybody know how this is done?

Thanks,
Richard

You'll need to write a servlet that can serve these files on your web app's behalf.

Not a JSP issue, so I've moved thisto the Servlets forum.
