Subject Re: Absolute paths within includes
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2006 21:38:33 GMT
	I'm using the version which embeds Tomcat.

	I'm going to have to check my Tomcat config on my other box.  I  
might have done something in server.xml to permit absolute addressing  
within includes.

	I'll probably just add my include directory into my application  
wars.  There are only five apps which need access to the include  
folder, the small amount of code duplication shouldn't be a problem.

	Thanks for the reply.
