Subject Re: how can I make my Java code write to a file using relative paths
Date Mon, 10 Feb 2003 22:36:31 GMT
Don't rely on relative paths. At any point in time - someone can change 
the current working directory and throw any preconceived notions way off.

Use absolute paths. Get the base path directory by configuring it in 
web.xml or server.xml.
