Hi All,

Here is the issue I am trying to resolve using ejb/servlets...

1. Download a zip file given a url...
2. Extract the contents of the zip file...
3. show the contents of the zip file....the content is primarily an html page...with a lot of images as relative paths
4. I dont want to cache any of these files...
5. Do we have a temep folder in jboss that allows us to do this?

Thanks
Preetham

JBoss creates a temp folder under %JBOSS_HOME%/server/< serverName> folder. You can use the jboss.server.temp.dir system property to get the path programatically.

And remember that the contents of the temp folder will be deleted on server restarts.

You mean you want to access the contents that you place in this temp folder through your web browser? I dont think that's possible. If you want that to be accessible through the browser then i would suggest creating a temp folder inside your web application. So that you can access it maybe like http://localhost:8080/myApp/uploadedFiles

If you are going to create a temp folder in your web-application, then i would suggest you go for ExplodedDeployment

Thanks Jaikiran,

But again...exploded deployment is not a way to go though right in production environment?...or is it ok...could you please brief on its pros and cons...or probably paste a link that does the same?

Thanks

As far as i know, there are no problems in going into production with exploded deployment.
