Hello,

I'm using GWT.getHostPageBaseURL() to access a file in my server, right now, what i deploy is the war file containing my folder docsFromUpload.

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\ipres\docsFromUpload


I access the files inside using this:



But the directory changed such that my docsFromUpload is now outside (one level higher) of my deployed war file, may I know how I can still access filename.doc? Using the code above, I can't seem to reach filename.doc in this directory:

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\docsFromUpload


Thank you in advance!

Regards!

Not sure about this but did you try out somePath/../stuff?
I am not even sure this will work. Does the servlet container allow you to touch stuff outside your deployed app?

Hello,

Yes, I have permission to touch other folders outside the deployed app. I was wondering, what do you mean by somePath/../stuff, this is how I "save" to the said folder one level up, but I don't know how to view these files from my system given that when I use GWT.getHostPageBaseURL(), what I get is http://localhost:8080/_____.file, if I use this, the system can't find the files specified, does this mean that i have to put an absolute path instead? because I'm trying to avoid this.

Thanks.

Regards,

Chris
