I am running tomcat as a service. I have deployed webservice for my application. The web service implementation

needs to access shared folder on remote PC. Using NetUse command,I have already mapped the network drive for the shared

folder. I am able to open that shared folder using the network drive on windows explorer.

when running tomcat as a service my webservice is not able to access the shared folder. However if I don't run

tomcat as a service and run it from batch file it is able to access the same shared folder.

Is there specific settings to be done for tomcat when it is executed as a service?

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Swati!

Most likely the userID that the Tomcat service is running under doesn't have file access permissions. Most Windows services run under a system service userID, although this can be changed via the service control panel.
