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 ..

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:


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"

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: you haven't - Edison. Tiny ad:
