Subject Re: how can I make my Java code write to a file using relative paths
Date Mon, 10 Feb 2003 23:22:18 GMT
Hello runu,

I'm guessing you are running your app as an NT Service, right?  The
base directory of the JVM becomes that from where it was started.  In
the case of a service, that is C:\WINNT\System32.  If you started
Tomcat from the .bat file which existed in CATALINA_HOME/bin, then
that is where the base directory would exist for your relative paths.
