How do I redirect a JSF page to a page which is outside the web project (for eg. I have to redirect the a jsf page to a page
present in the workdir location)...... Is this possible ?
How about doing it through a JSP page ?
It would be a serious security problem if you could do that arbitrarily. I don't even want to think about the exploits that would open up.
Then again, as I like to point out, a WEB server is NOT a FILE server. The only reason any files get copied from a web app directory is that a web logic module decided to do so. So if you want to create a servlet that gets its page source from some external directory and copies it back to the requester, that's fine. Just be careful.
