Subject RE: How to configure Tomcat to follow symbolic links.
Date Sun, 09 Feb 2003 15:02:38 GMT

Tomcat does not follow symlinks as a rule, by default, for security reasons.

Creating a filesystem symlink with recent versions (4.1.12+, I believe) of
Tomcat will have no effect, you need to declare an additional Resource in
server.xml with the correct attributes if you want Tomcat to follow
symlinks.

I am not sure what you mean, but under Unix, I created a symbolic link 
for a directory and it works just like a real directory.  I haven't test 
with symbolic link for file.
