Hi,
I have a j2ee application running on a cluster. The input for a functionality is a excel file. Can you tell me if it will be possible to access the file placed in a shared drive from the app?
Thanks in advance.

Depends on if it's accessible from the server. If your server can't (or doesn't) mount the share, then you won't be able to get access to it (modulo intricate schemes involving P2P or other ad-hoc file sharing techniques). If the share is available from the server, then you'll have to do the necessary vis a vis permissions.

It also depends on the host OS and how the application runs.

For example, if it runs as a service under Windows it will not be able to 'see' mapped drives and will need to use the full network path. You may also need to change the user running the service so that the application has the correct permissions.
