Subject RE: Servlets and relative paths
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2001 14:41:00 GMT
That's an improvement, although not quite it.  Now I have the full path
portion hardcoded in the java and not the xsl.  Ideally, I'd like it all
to be a relative path, but if I don't fully qualify the systemID
portion, the include still tries to prepend the tomcat/bin directory.

This helps, though.

Thanks,

Chris
