HI,

Needs some urgent tips if some one might have faced this before :

i am deploying a gwt WAR application in jetty server . in the client gwt classes inside WAR is rendering images . i wanted to keep all the images outside of the WAR file and needs to access images inside my gwt application . The reason being i wanted to keep images outside of WAR files because my images are keep changing for my application , so i wanted to keep put of WAR file .

Does anybody can provide me some tips about how to acccess these external images inside my GWT java classes ?

i am having a feeling like , GWT web application container is bit different from rest J2EE web container ..

Thanks,
Guru

I have been trying to do exactly the same thing today and came across this post (coincidentally posted yesterday :-)
I can't believe this is not a common requirement, but I haven't found a solution yet..
Please post back here if you find a solution and so will I.

Assuming you put your files in the following locations:

jetty/webapps/root.war
jetty/webapps/files/example.jpg

and your application is accessible on example.com

then you would access example.jpg from your clientside code as following:

relative: "/files/example.jpg"
or absolute: "http://example.com/files/example.jpg"


 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
