Execution difference on Application Server

I experienced a problem of retrieving a gif image from a servlet path, e.g. (http://localhost/folder/resource?id=xxxxxxxxx) when executing the code on the application server. But executing the path on the browser returns the image, and working with a simple java class in command compilation and execution returns the gif as well.
The Application server used is SilverStream eXtend Application Server 3.7.3.
Please if anyone has any experience such, lend a hand.. URGENT.

The path that a servlet can see is based on where
the servlet is installed in the application server.
Your servlet can do something like this:
ServletContext myContext = getServletContext();
String rootPath = myContext.getRealPath("") + "/";
Write out that String and you will know what the
servlet can see. You should put the files that you
want the servlet to use below that rootPath. Check
the Servlet information at
http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/index.html
and check the documentation for your app server.
HTH,
