File downloading from directory external to webapp
posted 5 years ago
What would be the best/easiest way to provide a simple file download JSP page for files located in a directory external to my servlet webapp. So far i have been unable to setup Apache Tomcat to include desired directories with HTTP service. Apparently the easiest way is to use sendRedirect() with servlets but i can't use it unless i have files included with Tomcat so now i am looking for a workaround.
