Subject file/dir creation from servlet wrong?
Date Sat, 14 Jun 2003 21:59:12 GMT
Running v4.1.24 on winxp.
Using jdk1.4
Installed via the apache installation program

>From within a servlet the following code behaves weirdly:

File fl = new File("blah/blah/blah");
fl = new File("doh.txt");
FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(fl);

The mkdirs creates the blah tree under the tomcat install dir:

C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1

FileOutputStream creates doh.txt under the windows start menu apache

C:\Documents and Settings\Dad\Start Menu\Programs\Apache Tomcat 4.1

Neither call is given a root dir to start from.
