Hello,

I'm trying to create folders and save files to these folders running my applications through tomcat. The problem is that when I'm creating a folder it gets the permission: rw-r--r-- when I then want to create a folder or file in that folder I don't have permission to do that. What do I have to do to be able to create folders with the permissions rwxr--r-- running from tomcat. I can do this when I'm not using tomcat. Can I make some configurations to make this work?

The problem may not be with Tomcat. You probably try and set read,write & execute booleans.

Also, check to make sure that the userid that Tomcat is running under has those permissions (and in the case of Unix/Linux, umask settings).

Applications running inside of Tomcat should be operating under the same rules as they would if they were stand-alone java apps.

Also, PLEASE don't create files or directories inside WARs or the Tomcat directories (in case you're doing that). Even when it works, it's dangerous.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
