I am trying to figure out how to set a string variable that will represent the location on the local file system. This location will be different between development and production so I would like to be able to set this for each location. I've been successful at using jndi to set the datasource for each location so I tried something like this:

<Resource name="jdbc/localPath" auth="Container" type="java.lang.String" value="C:\\work\\swstir\\images\\" />

but I get a "Cannot create resource instance" error message. It seems like either the <TOMCAT-HOME>/conf/web.xml or server.xml is where this should be set but I can't figure out how it's done. Any thoughts?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
