Hi All,

I am trying to obtain the complete path to the web server and servlet so I can write to the file system. In the past I have done this from a servlet. However, I am now using struts and wanting to seperate logic so I am passing to my bean the path where it can save the files to.

My question is how do I the server path and servlet path information when using the Struts Action class so I can write to the local file system.

Thank you david

You can use the same method you're used to with servlets by invoking Action.getServlet() which will return an ActionServlet - a descendant of HttpServlet.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
