Thread: JAVA Servlet reading from the wrong directory.

    JAVA Servlet reading from the wrong directory.


    I have JAVA Servlet that reads from a XML file, but only if the file is in
    WINNT/System 32 directory instead of my Web Root Directory. I am using Apache
    Tomcat 4.0. Any suggestion to make the Servlet read the file from the correct
    directory? Thanks in advance.

    The file name you want to read from is
    getServletContext().getRealPath("your.xml"), or something a lot like that.
