Struts2 Accessing a web folder in action class

Hi all,

In the action class, I would like to access the images folder located in the application alongside WEB-INF.
The directory structure looks like this -

Tomcat -> webapps -> app
-> images
-> jsp
-> WEB-INF

Is there a struts api that gives me the absolute path till the application?

Thanks!
Harsha

There's no Struts 2 API for that; you'd just use the regular ServletContext.getRealPath().

You can either implement ServletContextAware or use the ServletActionContext utility class.

Thanks David. I got the ServletContext instance from ServletActionContext and it works as I want it to.
Thanks!
