Subject RE: How to obtain reference to the ServletContext?

Glad you got things happening.  Sorry about the "context" typo, serves me right for coding
this late on a Sunday night. :)

That's the secret sauce, thanks! 

It took me a little bit to figure out which imports to make based upon your types (had to
dig through the JavaDocs). Also you have the variable "context" defined twice, I obviously
had to change that. But this works like a charm so thank you!

Hi Bryan! 
If you know that your service is definitely using HTTP, you can use the following code to
get the ServletContext: 
MessageContext context = MessageContext.getCurrentContext(); 
HttpServlet servlet = (HttpServlet)context.getProperty(HTTPConstants.MC_HTTP_SERVLET); 
ServletContext context = servlet.getServletContext(); 
In other words, the AxisServlet will automatically set a variety of transport-specific properties
in the MessageContext that carries each request/response.  Any component (service object,
handler, etc) which knows to ask for these will be able to obtain them as above. 
Hope this helps,
