I'm having trouble getting my tomcat base directory set. I'm thinking it's a path issue but not sure. I can't get my servlet to read a text file in my tomcat directory. I've moved it every where I can think of to get it to read but it's not finding it.
So I did a test and put a line of code in my servlet;
File dir = new File ("exam" + File.separator + "files"); dir.mkdir ();
It puts the new dir in Window/System32. How do I get it to put it in my tomcat dir?
I guess what I'm asking is this: I can make my servlet work when I specify file name "C:\\My Document\\file.txt"
But when I move it up to my host provider in my webapps folder, how do I specify where to find the file, since it won't be on my machine anymore? Does this need to be done in my web.xml, and if so how? Thanks
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
