I am developing on Unix using Tomcat.I installed the Tomcat as root and created a directory under webapps and saved some files etc as root.
Now i started developing as regular user and trting to save some files under the same directory , but it is not allowing me,If I check the permissions , it has the write permission.

Please can some one shed some light on this.

What are the permissions on the directory?
