Hello,
Is is possible to use a datasource (in JSP) for something besides the database connection? I want to specify an upload directory for my images but I don't want to have to change it in the code itself later. So can I somehow do it in the context file using a DataSource?
Thanks in Advance
H

If this is for a JSP application, whats wrong with using the application context?

Thanks, that's probably what I wanted in the first place, I just got somewhat confused, as I'm new to this. Anyway, I worked it out using the "getRealPath()" method instead. However, I am getting an AccessControlException: access denied whenever I try to test it out. I'm pretty sure I have the right path now, or at least I'm moderately sure.
Any ideas?
