Hi all, I am developing an application that will run in a clustered application server. My app will have message driven beans and session beans. Now I know that you should not have any file I/O in that environment and that is fine. The question is that if I have servlets running within that application aswell can I safely let the servlet access the file system to read or write files.
Note that Java provides very fine control over the IO allowed by a web application. For example in Tomcat, with security turned on, a servlet can be allowed to read/write etc in only one specific directory location.
