Hello,

I am trying to access an image stored in Tomacat's WebApp folder in a servlet.

Folder Hierarchy on WindowsXP machine is as Follows:
C:\ProgramFiles\TomcatInstallationDirectory \WebApp\MyWebApp\Winter.jpeg.

Now my question is what path should I specify in the servlet to access the image?

The URL will be http://localhost:8080/MyWebApp/MyServlet

Thanks in advance.

Specify in the servlet for access how?

If you want the servlet to open the image file using java.io.File and related methods - that works by operating system absolute paths .
If you want the servlet to write a HTML page with an IMG tag to fetch the image the url will have to be relative to the web application.
