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
