When users upload images, I am saving it to an external folder(outside deployed WAR file). I need some way by which i can access these files and display it on the webpage. How can this be done.

The user uploaded files can be displayed in a web page using servlet/jsp by reading the physical file (
etc). Then the bytes of the read stream can be written into the output stream of
to display the read files in web page.
in = new
("absoulte path name"));
No pain, No gain.

Just be sure to release the file after you read it. Or your app will have a lot of memory problems.
