Frontman 2.0 viewsPath

Is there any way to add more than one viewsPath?

Id like to categorize my jsp pages in different folders within the jsp folder. i.e. a folder for "site" and a folder for "administration". However debugging the code it looks like you can only declare one viewPath.

Below is what i currently have now that works fine but id like to add another entry for a administration folder.

Maybe i am just looking at this the wrong way?

The intent was that you would set the view path to the root of the JSP hierarchy and use sub-folders for organization. For example, I always set it to WEB-INF/views and use sub-folders to segregate the view JSPs logically.

Ok, that makes sense, then i assume i would keep my css, js, images folders outside of WEB-INF. Im trying to nail down a re-useable file structure, in the past i have use apache in front of tomcat and just left it a a flat file structure, im trying to get away from that.
I agree. Here's the link:
