Subject RE: Servlets and relative paths
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2001 12:45:28 GMT
What I had to do was put the xsl files in the root directory for my webapp
where I could make the href the full url
(http://localhost/webapp/sections.xsl) This was the only way I could get it
to work correctly. Obviously this exposes your stylesheet to anyone who
requests that url. I finally gave up on the include since I was only sharing
with 2 stylesheets, but I still use it for my dtd, which has the same
problem when processed by a stylesheet.

I didn't think that I would get it to work as I wanted since Xalan(library
I'm using) doesn't know about tomcat, and I couldn't find anywhere in xalan
to set a default path to look for include files/dtd's. Therefore it always
assumes the 'working dir' for the application when looking for includes. 

The ugly option is that you could make the include path =
"../webapps/MyContext/sections.xsl" assuming your context is under webapps.
Of course this is inconsistant with other paths in your application(i.e.
getResourceAsStream()) and is a pain to maintain if you move your context.

The other ugly option being chucking the includes into the bin directory,
but that defeats the purpose of separating contexts.

No, my problem is that I can use this method to read the xsl file just
fine.  It's the includes inside the xsl file that aren't working.

For example, inside the xsl file (which I read into the servlet using
your pointer from the earlier email) there is the line

<xsl:include href='sections.xsl'/>

and I get an error saying that it cannot find file
tomcat/bin/sections.xsl.  Which, of course, it cannot, since the file is
located in Meta-Inf/.
